Updated: 2 hours ago

(Quad Cities, IA/IL) -- We are on track for a day with highs in the 30s and 40s thanks to southwest winds ushering in a mild air mass. Don’t get used to this though, an arctic front will quickly arrive after 9PM and temps will dive from the upper 30s to the single digits and low teens by Wednesday morning. Wind chills will be at or below zero all of Wednesday and temps will not recover much more than a few degrees from where they start in the morning. Clear skies on Wednesday night will allow for the air temps to dip below zero, with wind factored in, it will be like -20º likely leading to school delays and First Alert Day on Thursday morning. Thursday night into Friday morning will likely be the coldest stretch with lows near -10º, but winds won’t be a factor so it will feel warmer than Thursday morning.
