FIRST ALERT DAY for bitter wind chills until 10 AM Tuesday 2/16/21
One more taste of winter before temperatures moderate
DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - FIRST ALERT DAY until 10 AM Tuesday for snow south and east, and bitterly cold wind chills west of the Mississippi River***
Dangerously cold temperatures and wind chills have resulted in a First Alert Day for our Tuesday morning.. Wind chills will be as cold as -25º for a brief period of time this morning. Roads will gradually improve as well. Winds will be diminishing this morning so blowing and drifting won’t be a major issue, however SE of the QC can expect worse road conditions than many of their Iowa neighbors. Skies will gradually clear today and a slow warming trend will begin. We will be in the teens for a couple days and the 20s for a couple days before the 30s return this weekend. There will be minor chances for snow Wednesday and heading into the weekend, but each system looks to only bring a dusting to half inch.
FIRST ALERT DAYS are issued to inform you of inconvenient, hazardous, or potentially dangerous weather in our viewing area--weather that could impact you and your family. Look for frequent updates on air, online, on our social media platforms and on the QC Weather App.
