***A Freezing Rain Advisory will go into effect Friday evening, lasting through Saturday morning.***

We’re waking up to temperatures in the single digits this morning. Temps will rise to around 30 degrees by afternoon as clouds move back in from the south. Light rain showers will overspread the area this evening, especially after 8 pm. Because our ground is so cold, we do expect some icy travel conditions. This may happen even with air temperatures above freezing. Simply put, we’ve seen below-freezing temperatures for more than a week and the ground is quite frozen. So even though we’ll see liquid fall, it will turn icy after dinnertime. As temperatures rise overnight, the icy ground will turn slushy and then wet by daybreak. Temperatures will rise to around 34 by morning. We’ll continue to rise to 44 Saturday afternoon with a few isolated sprinkles or showers. Some fog will also be possible.

For the kick-off of the Holiday Season in Davenport and Moline, we’ve got some sprinkles and light rain possible with temperatures in the upper 30s to middle 40s.

Heavy rain will be likely Sunday with some spots receiving over an inch. There is a slight chance as the precipitation wraps up on Monday, we could have a little accumulating snow again.

Colder temperatures next week. Have a great weekend!

After a sunny start, we'll see clouds on the increase across the region. Look for highs in the upper 20's to lower 30's. Our next system takes shape tonight into Saturday, with precipitation starting off as a period of freezing rain or freezing drizzle. This could make for some slippery roadways and sidewalks overnight. A FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY will be in effect from 9 tonight until 6 AM Saturday. That precipitation should transition to all rain toward daybreak, so keep an umbrella handy for the Festival of Trees Parade. Rain chances will continue through the rest of the weekend, with highs in the 40's for both Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures slide back into the 30s Monday, with a slight chance for some light snow.

TODAY:  Cold sunshine, then increasing cloudiness by late afternoon. High: 31°. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.
