Disturbance responsible for the light fresh covering of snow earlier today will leave behind some broken cloudiness for the rest of the night. Fortunately, no major cold will be left behind as overnight lows will only drop to the upper 20s.
We’ll work in some sunshine Tuesday, where at the same time try to melt a smidgen of that snow outside as daytime highs will top out around the mid 30s. This will be followed by the warmest day of the week, which is still scheduled on Wednesday.
This may be preceded by some morning fog as warmer winds out the southeast runs over the snow-covered ground. I’m expecting a wide range in daytime highs due to the snow-covered or lack if any snow cover on the ground. For areas around the Quad Cities and points north and east, upper 30s to around 40 degrees will be expected. Farther southwest with little if any snow on the ground, warmer 40s.
Some moisture may tap into this system by Wednesday night, leading to the potential of some light rain given how mild the temperatures will still be at that time.
Cooler 30s will then spread in for the rest of the work week including the beginning of the weekend. This will be followed by our next round of snowfall, which is scheduled to arrive by Saturday evening. I’ll keep an eye on it for you.
