Our weekend storm is coming into focus over the last couple hours...and it looks like the heaviest snow will slide just SOUTH OF THE QUAD CITIES. An area of low pressure will track through the middle part of the country, laying down a swath of heavy snow in portions of Missouri and central Illinois. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for some local counties from Sunday at midnight through Sunday 7pm.
Winter Storm Watch
We should see about 2-3 inches of wet snow in the Quad Cities, while areas from Fairfield and Burlington to Galesburg could see up to 6 or 7 inches of snow!
With this storm, like many winter storms, the path the low takes will be critical to just how much snow we end up with. Check out this ensmeble from the NWS Weather Prediction Center. It shows where different models place the area of low pressure at different times...each little dot marks a different forecast for the center of low pressure!
