National Weather Service Quad Cities IA IL
943 PM CST Sun Feb 23 2020

...HEAVY SNOW POSSIBLE MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH EARLY WEDNESDAY...

.A slow moving winter storm system moving out of the southern
plains is expected to bring snow across eastern Iowa and
northwest Illinois Monday night, which will continue through
Tuesday night. Precipitation will start out as rain during the
day Monday which will change to snow Monday evening. Snow may be
moderate to heavy at times, especially Tuesday through Tuesday
night. Increasing north to northwest winds may cause blowing and
drifting snow Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

The storm has the potential to be one of the strongest winter
storms of the season so far. While it is too soon to determine
specific snowfall amounts, there is above average confidence that
this system will produce heavy snowfall amounts over portions of
the watch area.
