Weather Summary
National Weather Service Quad Cities IA IL
956 AM CST Thu Jan 19 2017

A mix of clouds and clear skies was seen across the area last
night, as high pressure moved off to the east and a low pressure
system lifted into Arkansas. Patchy dense fog developed across
parts of eastern Iowa, with a heavy frost elsewhere. The frost
resulted in slick roads and sidewalks. As of 6 am, low temperatures
ranged from the mid 20s to lower 30s, with the exception of
Fort Madison with a low of 34. Towards daybreak, a few light rain
showers moved northward into parts of southeast Iowa, northeast
Missouri, and west central Illinois.

Rain chances will gradually increase today and tonight, as the
low pressure system in Arkansas lifts northeast into southern
Illinois. A rumble or two of thunder can not be ruled out for
parts of eastern Iowa and northern Illinois later this afternoon
and tonight. In the meantime, cloudy skies and light east winds
will be common. Highs this afternoon will mainly top out in the
upper 30s to mid 40s.

The rain chances will gradually diminish during the overnight
hours, at which time, foggy conditions will be possible. Rainfall
totals by Friday morning will mainly be between a tenth of an
inch and a half inch.
