9 p.m. update - It's only a slight tweak to the forecast tonight. I'm removing the 1-3" zone as it looks like the bulk of the area will see around 3 inches of snow or more. Also, there's a slight adjustment to the band of heaviest snow, with 5"+ Northwest of the Quad Cities.
Previous post - After a relatively quiet winter so far things are looking very cold and snowy this weekend!
The weekend gets off to a frigid start Friday night and Saturday with wind chills dipping to -20° in the Quad Cities Friday night. Areas North of the Quad Cities are under a Wind Chill Advisory until 9 a.m. Saturday for wind chills as low as -25°.
The cold eases slightly Saturday afternoon as we get ready for our next snow-maker on Sunday.
Snow begins early Sunday morning and will last into the evening. Totals should be in the range of 3-5" in the Quad Cities with a few slightly higher totals possible to the North and lower totals to the South are expected.
Some roads will be covered with snow as early as Sunday morning, so you'll have to give yourself extra time if you are heading out for church or anything else Sunday morning. Roads get even worse by Sunday afternoon.
Things will improve a bit on Monday before another chance for snow Tuesday.
