First Alert Day Through Sunday 1/19/20 for strong winds and icy wind chills

By  | 

Davenport FIRST ALERT DAY has been extended from now until 6 PM Sunday for icy wind chills.

Now that our wintry mix of snow, freezing rain and sleet has come to an end, we turn our attention to an arctic front sweeping through the region, sending us into the deep freeze. As that front moves through the upper Midwest, we’ll see temperatures falling from our morning high in the 30’s, back into the teens by this afternoon and evening, and single digit to sub-zero readings overnight. Combine that cold arctic air with blustery winds out of the west, and we could see wind chill values down to -25 in some locations. These strong winds could also produce some patchy blowing snow, reducing visibility on area roads. Sunshine and scattered clouds return Sunday, with highs struggling to reach the mid single digits. Wind chill values will remain in the sub-zero range as winds slowly diminish Sunday evening.

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.
