***A FIRST ALERT DAY is in effect until Noon Friday for wind and bitter cold****
Our First Alert Day continues until noon today due to wind chills as cold as -20°. However, even though we’ve set a record low in Dubuque already and many areas are starting off below normal, today will be the start of a warming trend. South winds will kick in this afternoon helping get above zero quickly and eventually to near 20°. This weekend will feature highs in the mid to upper 30s each afternoon. Saturday could bring a few flakes, but nothing that will impact travel. The next chance for rain or snow will be on Monday with highs well into the 30s and 40s.
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.
