Monday brings a mix of rain and snow that changes to all snow Monday night.

The snow could be heavy at times Tuesday. It’s a bit early to say just how much we get, but the potential is there for more than 4 inches of snow.

This graphic shows where at least 4″ of snow is most likely, and it includes the Quad Cities.
