Frost Advisory Issued Tonight For The Quad Cities
I Loathe You Mother Nature. A haiku poem.
Mother Nature sucks
This cold makes me want to duck
Get hit by a truck
Sorry, I'm not a poet. I am pretty mad at Mother Nature because she is just playing games with us now. Not only is today (Friday) going to be way to cold for May, but the Quad Cities will be under a Frost Advisory tonight. Come on, Mother Nature!
Normally, when I see the forecast in May and there is frost, I like to joke about it because it won't last long. This time, it's personal Mother Nature. Last weekend when it was 1,000° with 200% humidity, my wife and I planted our garden thinking we were safe from frost until this fall. What I should've known is that I have terrible luck and Mother Nature hates me.
Today (Friday), it's not even going to get into the 50's! the National Weather Service (NWS) of the Quad Cities says that our average low for this time of the year is in the mid to upper 50's...
To kickoff a long Memorial Day weekend, we are going to be under a Frost Advisory Friday night into Saturday morning. If you have a garden planted, get ready to make sure they are covered up and protect tonight.
According to the National Weather Service (NWS) of the Quad Cities, we are going to dip into the mid-30's tonight causing widespread frost, especially north of I-80. We will be under a Frost Advisory starting at 12 a.m. on Saturday, May 29. The advisory will expire at 7 a.m. Saturday morning.
Here is the forecast for today through Saturday, according to the NWS of the Quad Cities:
- Patchy drizzle with a chance of rain before noon, then rain likely, mainly between noon and 2pm. Cloudy, with a steady temperature around 46. North wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.
- Friday Night

Fortunately, we won't see that frost last for long. The rest of the Memorial Day weekend should be fairly warm and sunny.
This is the rest of the forecast for your Memorial Day weekend, according to the NWS of the Quad Cities:
