Record-setting cold temperatures possible this weekend in Quad Cities

DAVENPORT, Iowa - March will come in more like a Polar bear than a lion this year with near record cold temps and a chance of snow, according to KWQC-TV 6 Meterologist Kevin Phelps.

First, the chance of snow Friday, maybe an inch or two along and north of I-80 by Friday evening, with slippery road conditions late Friday night.

Then come the cold temperatures Saturday, feeling more like January than March, with strong wind gusts up to 40 miles an hour.

By Saturday afternoon, temperatures will drop into the single digits, and by Sunday morning, the Quad Cities area will be below zero with wind chills as cold as -25°.

That's when we may set new cold temperature records.

The National Weather Service says the January-like cold weather will likely continue at least the first week of March, maybe longer.
