Measurable snow fell for eight straight days from February 3rd through the 11th. This left the Quad Cities buried in fresh powder with totals around 14.7 inches that has compacted down to 8 inches. It was a long, cold and snowy week but there is a change coming that could be a step towards spring.
Temperatures will start to warm up as soon as Tuesday as temperatures get near average and then well above it by Wednesday. Warm, southern air will be moving in ahead of some rain on Thursday so temperatures will hit the 40s. Lots of this snowfall will start to melt with temperatures that warm but not too much because it is also expected to be cloudy.
The only chance for precipitation comes on Thursday and that will be rain. No more snow is forecasted in the next week to week and a half.
