Cold Today, But A Warming Trend Follows

Spring is officially here, but it sure doesn't look or feel like it across the Mississippi Valley.

The 0.9" of snow that fell in Moline Monday night brings our winter total to 65.1".  That is more than double the snow we see in an average winter!  We're still 4.6" shy of the snowiest winter on record.

While it will be very cold today and tonight with temperatures running about twenty degrees below average for late March, a warming trend in on the way.

We'll see highs well into the 40s and 50s Wednesday through Saturday and highs in the 60s Sunday and Monday!

This will be the first time we've seen back-to-back highs in the 60s since back in mid-October, more than five months ago!

But, it doesn't appear that it's going to last.

The Climate Prediction Center is forecasting below average temperatures for the month of April for Illinois and Iowa.
