EARLIER STORY: Drizzle, fog hamper morning commute

By Rick Rector

Top of the morning to all in the Quad-Cities. You’re waking up to 48 degrees — yep, that’s not a misprint — with drizzle and areas of fog. Some area schools are delaying the start of classes this morning because of the weather.

Here’s the forecast.  Look for areas of drizzle before 7 a.m, then a slight chance of showers after 7 a.m. Patchy fog will reduce visibilities in the region throughout the morning commute.

The day will be cloudy with a high near 49 degrees.

Tonight there’s a slight chance of showers then occasional showers and possibly a thunderstorm after 7 p.m. with patchy fog making a return. The National Weather Service says temperatures will rise to around 55 degrees by 4 a.m. with east winds gusting as high as 20 mph.
