Rock Island and Moline have new mayors on this cold, rainy morning.

1 - Moline has its first female mayor in the person of Stephanie Acri, who handily defeated incumbent mayor Scott Raes in yesterday's election. Rock Island residents elected Mike Thomas as their new mayor with a large majority as well. Our news partners at WQAD News 8 have all yesterday's election results here.

2 - Depending on what the atmosphere decides to do today, this cold rain could become snow this afternoon, and if so, could accumulate on grassy surfaces, and make roads slick. WQAD Meteorologist Eric Sorensen has the forecast details here.

3 - Jake Arrieta struck out 13 of the first 14 batters he saw over 6-innings in the Cubs 2-1 win last night in St. Louis. More scores when we do That Sports Thing at around 7:35am on The Morning KIIK Start.

4 - Double ticket giveaway this morning. I'll have tickets to the July 13 show by The Beach Boys at the Adler Theatre to giveaway during the 7am hour, and a pair of tickets to I Love The 90's show next Saturday April 15 at the iWireless Center for you to win during the 8am hour. And entertainment news on That Hollywood Thing at about 8:35am on FM 104-9.

Stay dry and warm.
