Weather Summary
National Weather Service Quad Cities IA IL
1011 AM CST Tue Jan 10 2017

Cloudy skies, gusty south southeast winds, and rising
temperatures prevailed across the area last night, as a low
pressure system moved eastward into Iowa. In addition, some
light rain showers were seen overnight, with rainfall totals
mainly between a trace and five hundredths of an inch. A few
amounts over a tenth of an inch were reported along and north
of Highway 20. At 9 am, temperatures range from 36 in
Independence, up to 50 in Keokuk.

The rainy conditions will exit the area to the northeast today,
as the low pressure system in central Iowa quickly moves into
the northern Great Lakes. An isolated rumble of thunder can
not be ruled out. Strong west northwest winds and plummeting
temperatures will be common area-wide this afternoon; as a
cold front surges southeast into the Ohio River Valley by this
evening. Wind speeds will increase to 20 to 30 miles an hour,
with gusts over 40 miles an hour at times. Temperatures will
drop into the 20s and 30s by the evening commute, with wind
chills in the teens and 20s. In addition, areas mainly north
of Highway 30 may see the rain mix with, or change over to
snow, before coming to an end, with a dusting of snow possible
along and north of the Highway 20 corridor.
