FIRST ALERT DAY in effect until 9 a.m. Friday for accumulating snow
DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) -- A large winter storm system is expected to bring some accumulating snow and blustery winds into the northern portions of the TV6 viewing area.
Precipitation is starting off as rain south of the Quad Cities, but as that rain falls temperatures will start to cool and precipitation will transition to all snow. They will be big, wet snowflakes.
Snowfall rates could be a half inch to one inch per hour at times Thursday evening, which would be enough to overcome the warm ground.
Southeast of the Quad Cities toward Galesburg and Macomb, an inch or less of snow is expected. In the QC metro, 2-4″ inches of snow is possible, with 4-6″+ north of Highway 30. Any shift in the storm or dry air moving in could change these amounts.
Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories have been issued .
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.
