Area police are asking Quad-City residents to stay off the roads unless they absolutely have to be out tonight and early in the morning.

Quad-City area law enforcement agencies are reporting numerous accidents around the region due to the slick road conditions. Most of the accidents are fender-bender type crashes between several vehicles, although there also are numerous reports of vehicles sliding off roadways and into ditches.

No serious injuries have been reported.

Meteorologist Linda Engebretson of the National Weather Service, Davenport, said the snow should continue until about 4 a.m.

Accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are expected, she added.

Sunday’s high will be in the low 20s, while the overnight lows likely will be in the single digits, as will be the wind chill values, she added.

Monday’s high is expected to be in the middle 20s under sunny skies, with an overnight low of about 10 degrees. Tuesday’s high should be in the lower 30s under mostly sunny skies.

Here is a thought Davenport, do the job taxpayers pay you to do and clean the streets off in a timely manner. Why is Bettendorf sooo much better at this? Maybe Davenport should study their ways.
