Hope you're soaking up the sunny, 40 degree plus days this week.

We're in for a rude weather awakening soon.

WQAD reports that although the rest of this week should be pretty calm and sunny, next week is going to be a doozy in comparison.

In fact, according to the National Weather Service, by next Wednesday, December 11, the high in Davenport will be just 17 degrees with a low of 13. That's a 33-degree drop off from the predicted high of 50 degrees on Sunday. The long term forecast predicts things will stay quite chilly until the week before Christmas.

Hold on to your hats, Quad Cities. Winter hasn't even officially begun.
