QUAD CITIES, Iowa/Ill. (KWQC) -- Strong winds will develop Tuesday as a storm system rolls in from the south bringing widespread quarter to half-inch rains to the QCA.

Highs Tuesday will reach the 40s and 50s, but it won’t be as nice as the last two days as winds gust close to 50 mph at times and showers will be an on-and-off type event most of the day.

Gusty winds will last into Wednesday morning before we get a brief break from the active weather.

Another system will arrive on Thursday bringing a thin stripe of heavy snow to the region. This looks to play out similarly to last week where areas along and west of the Mississippi pick up the bulk of the accumulations with very localized 6″ totals. Stay tuned for more updates.

TODAY: Windy and rainy. High: 53º. Winds: S 20-30 mph.

TONIGHT: Windy. Low: 39º Winds: W 15-25 mph.

TOMORROW: Breezy. High: 41º.
