Areas south & east of the Quad Cities will be under a Winter Weather Advisory starting at 12 PM Wednesday until 6 AM Thursday.
The Cold: As the snow wraps up overnight, temperatures will slide into the 10s by early Thursday. Blustery winds around 15-20 mph will drive wind chill readings into the single digits below zero.
The coldest air sets in early Friday morning, with temperatures below zero (The QC’s coldest reading so far this season is -1°). Wind chills across the area will range from -10° to -20°.
Milder air returns again by Saturday.
