Winter Storm Warning for QCA....

A major winter storm is heading into the QCA Wednesday night into Thursday.  Right now, the Quad City metro area is under a Winter Storm Warning until 6 pm Thursday night 9 (shaded in red).    While a Blizzard Warning has been issued for Johnson, Washington, Cedar, Jackson, and Jo Daviess Counties (shaded in orange).

Neighborhoods in the Winter Storm Warning including the Quad Cities could pick up 4-8" of snow while areas under the Blizzard Warning will get 10 or more inches.  White out conditions are also possible as winds will be sustained from 25-35 mph with gusts of 45 mph or more at times.  This will cause snow to blow onto roads making it difficult to see and drive on area roads so be very careful.  Of course we will keep you posted on-air and on-line!
