Veterans Day Chill

After seeing temperatures near 60° on Saturday & near 50° on Sunday, we are in for a BIG change in the Quad Cities.  A strong cold front will sweep through the area on Monday, meaning our forecast high of 43° will occur during the middle or late morning hours and plummet during the afternoon.  Combine that with gusty northerly winds, wind chills will be down in the teens!
7 Day Forecast (valid 11/10/13)
As you can see, there is a chance to see some light rain and snow showers along with the passage of the cold front.  Ahead of the front there is a chance for a few light showers, but once the front passes, we could get in a period of light snow.  In fact, a few models are bringing a band of light snow in during the early afternoon hours.
WSI RPM model valid 2 p.m. Monday
The precipitation should be out of the area by the evening hours, with accumulations on grassy areas of a half an inch or less (if any). We'll start to see a decrease in the clouds Mon. night as a very strong area of Canadian high pressure settle into the area, meaning COLD, COLD, COLD.  Temperatures Monday night and Tuesday night will dip down into the middle teens to lower 20s area wide, leaving high temps barely making it above freezing on Tuesday!
