9:30 A.M. UPDATE: Not much has changed since our early morning report. It's still -2 degrees in the Quad-Cities under fair skies. And it's still -21 degrees when you factor in the wind chill. Clouds are increasing and the high should be near 11 degrees.


EARLIER STORY: Top of the morning to all in the Quad-Cities. We made it through January without a lot of frigid temps. Not so as far as February is concerned.  The month's starting with -2 degrees in the Quad-Cities; -21 when you factor in the wind chill.

Many schools in the area are delaying the start of classes today because of the weather including Davenport, Bettendorf, Pleasant Valley and North Scott schools.

Here’s the forecast from the National Weather Service. Increasing clouds with a high near 11 degrees and wind chill values as low as -20 degrees. A wind chill advisory is in effect until noon.

Tonight brings an 80 percent chance of snow as temperatures will rise to around 16 degrees by midnight. Wind chill values will be as low as -5 degrees. New snow accumulation of around 2 inches.

This cold snap is clear and overwelming evidence that global warming is a complete fraud and that the vast majority of experts are in on the consipracy. All the extreme weather across the planet is obviously just a coincidence. I'm with Contemtio, G , Fox and Friends, and the oil companies on this one.

Contemptio

Is Al Gore in town?

G

No he's with his friends in Duabi where they specialize in clean fuels.
