Weather Summary
National Weather Service Quad Cities IA IL
639 PM CST Mon Feb 19 2018

Rain showers, isolated thunderstorms, and areas of dense fog were
in place across much of the region Monday evening as an area of
low pressure tracked across eastern Iowa. These showers and storms
produced localized areas of heavy rainfall and even small hail,
with rainfall amounts as of 6 PM ranging from a few hundreths to
around half an inch. Temperatures varied widely due to a warm
front in place along the Highway 30 corridor and leftover snow
cover, with highs ranging from 38 in Independence, to 66 in

The low pressure will move into northern Illinois this evening,
and will bring an associated cold front into portions of eastern
Iowa overnight. Widespread rain showers and isolated
thunderstorms will continue to develop with this low and cold
front, lasting well into the day Tuesday. Rainfall amounts
will be heaviest along and east of the Mississippi River, where
total amounts by Tuesday evening will range from 1 to 2 inches. A
few pockets of freezing rain will also develop over locations
north and west of Cedar Rapids, where a few hundreths to a tenth
of an inch of ice is possible by Tuesday morning. Overnight low
temperatures will range from near 30 over Waterloo and
Independence, to middle 50s over Macomb and Peoria. High
temperatures for Tuesday will range from the upper 30s over
Independence and Cedar Rapids, to near 60 over Princeton Illinois
and Macomb by noontime, before dropping during the afternoon.
