Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Quad Cities IA IL
525 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 12Z TAFS through 12Z Thursday Morning)
ISSUED AT 458 AM CST Wed Nov 22 2017

A W/NW breeze will gradually back to the SW this afternoon and the
S this evening. Expect some scattered high clouds through the day,
with increasing mid clouds tonight. 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 12z
