More Snow Expected To Fall In The Quad Cities Friday Into Saturday
I hate always giving this news, but more snow is expected to fall on the Quad Cities tomorrow (Friday) into Saturday morning. Most areas throughout the Quad Cities will see 1+" of snow, but some areas do have a potential to see snowfall totals greater than 3".
According to the National Weather Service (NWS) of the Quad Cities, snow is likely to fall Friday afternoon into Saturday morning. There is a high potential for 1" or more across a large portion of the Quad Cities are. There is also a moderate potential for 2 or more inches.
Officials say that confidence is low on higher amounts, but there could be a narrow band of over 3" of snow. The NWS says it is too early to know where this band would set up.
Right now, officials from the NWS say that the snow will be dry and powdery which may result in blowing and drifting in open areas. Winds will be coming out of north/northwest and could be gusting around 20 mph.
