Winter Storm in the Forecast
Eastern Iowa and northwestern Illinois are bracing for a snow storm that's already causing slick roads to the west.
Michelle O'Neill reports.
Meteorologist Alex Gibbs, from the National Weather Service in Davenport, says the current forecast for the Quad Cities is 6-9 inches of snow, but less in Dubuque from 5-9 inches.
The existing snowpack is already a huge sheet of ice. So with blustery conditions in the forecast, some snowfall reports may not be accurate.
Temperatures are forecast to be in the upper 20s to near 30 today, tonight, and Tuesday morning. Then they're expected to fall later on Tuesday.
Gibbs says if skies are cloudy, Tuesday night's low should be around 16. But If skies clear, forecasters will have to revise it. Check the weather service website for the latest information HERE.
