Winter Weather Advisory

weather alert 2015

The Quad Cities is bracing for another round of dangerous winter weather. The National Weather Service in the Quad Cities has issued a Winter Weather Advisory until 2 a.m. Friday.

While snow accumulations will be minor, winds of 20 to 30 mph, gusting up to 40 mph, will blow the snow reducing visibility and creating white-out conditions.

In addition, temperatures will fall from the teens to the single digits and wind chill readings will drop from 0 to minus 20 by 2 a.m.

Drifting now is also possible and could create hazardous travel conditions, especially in rural areas. The worst conditions are expected in eastern Iowa from late afternoon to early evening. In Illinois, the worst conditions will be between 6 p.m. and midnight.

A Wind Chill advisory is also likely for most locations through Saturday morning.
