Everything You Need To Know About The Snowstorm That’s About To Hit The Quad Cities
Just when we thought winter was over, Mother Nature decided to come back with a vengeance.
The Quad Cities are under a Winter Weather Advisory from 7 PM tonight through 7 PM tomorrow night. According to the National Weather Service, the QCA can expect 4 inches of snow in between tonight and tomorrow morning, with an additional accumulation of two inches on Monday. 5-7 inches total are expected in Scott County and Rock Island counties, extending into Clinton, Jackson, Dubuque, Carroll, Jo Daviess and beyond. Counties to the South of us are expected to fare better, with West Central Illinois, Northeast Missouri, and Far Southeast Iowa receiving between 1-3 inches.
Snow will begin tonight around 9 PM and taper off in the morning hours. They're saying the heaviest part of the storm will likely end around 1 PM tomorrow, but there's no guarantee on the timing, as snowstorms are notoriously unpredictable.
Either way, we can expect a messy commute tomorrow morning. Since it's been so long since we've experienced a significant snowfall, there will likely be people who have forgotten to use caution while driving. Prepare yourself by leaving extra time in the morning for your commute, and as always in these situations, go slow! Getting to work on time is not worth putting yourself in harm's way.
