Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Quad Cities IA IL
1145 AM CST Wed Nov 22 2017


Issued at 330 AM CST Wed Nov 22 2017

Other than a few high clouds, the sky was clear across the area
overnight. A northwest wind averaged 5 to 10 mph. Early morning
temperatures ranged from the mid teens to low 20s.


.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
ISSUED AT 330 AM CST Wed Nov 22 2017

Surface high pressure will slide east today with a return to a
southwest breeze. Several short range models have a light precip
signal, indicating modest WAA may support a few late afternoon
and evening flurries/sprinkles north of Interstate 80. Highs this
afternoon will reach the mid to upper 30s.

Tonight, flurries will linger in the evening north, with a
southwest breeze keeping temps up in the 25 to 30 degree range.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Tuesday)
ISSUED AT 330 AM CST Wed Nov 22 2017

Quiet weather will continue through the long term period with few
impacts to sensible weather save temperature swings.  With the storm
track north of the area, the next chance for precip will be at the
end of the period as cold front drags across the area.  Confidence
in this occurring is low at this time.  Temperatures look to be near
average through the period with exception of Friday and Monday into
Tuesday where highs could be 10 to 20 degrees above average as highs
in the 50s and possibly low 60s look plausible.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Thursday Afternoon)
ISSUED AT 1145 AM CST Wed Nov 22 2017

Expect some scattered high clouds through the day, with
increasing mid clouds this evening. There may be a few flurries
or sprinkles late this afternoon/evening, mainly near KDBQ/KCID,
but predictability and impact are low and have not included in 18z
TAFS. Clearing skies can be expected by Thursday. South winds
this afternoon and tonight then west to northwest on Thursday.
Wind speeds should be around 10 knots or less through this taf cycle.
