Weather in the Quad-Cities in 2012 almost was predictable. If you stepped outside, chances are it would be hot and dry. The year saw 15 record highs, a record, and a well below average amount of rain and snow. The year was the 23rd driest since the National Weather Service has been keeping records in 1874.
