On Wednesday, we told you that 2022 would start off with more snow and extremely cold temperatures. After getting our first "real" snowstorm on Tuesday, which dumped 3-4.5 inches of snow throughout the Quad Cities area, officials are expecting the Quad Cities to see snowfall totals doubling Tuesday's amount on New Year's Day.

According to the National Weather Service, the National Weather Service of the Quad Cities, and the National Weather Service of Des Moines (NWS), the Quad Cities area is under a Winter Storm Watch as a winter storm is expected to bring more snow on Saturday, January 1, 2022.

NWS officials say that a large winter storm is expected to bring more accumulating snow with several inches possible in central, eastern, southern, and southeastern Iowa, northwest and west-central Illinois, and northeast Missouri, late Friday night through Saturday evening. Predicted accumulating snowfall values are still subject to change, but confidence is high in accumulating snow.

Officials from the National Weather Service are still unsure where the greatest amount of snowfall will occur.
