"Sticky" the Snow Stick is set up outside the News 8 studios, ready to measure the New Year's Day snow. 

A winter weather advisory is set to take affect in the Quad City Metro area on New Year's Day.  See alerts and warnings in your county, here.  The advisory is from 6 am Friday until midnight Saturday morning.  

Freezing rain is likely to begin arriving for areas south of the Quad Cities by 6 am Friday morning. Just before the noon hour, a mix of snow and freezing rain will begin here in the immediate Quad Cities and continue through the early afternoon before we see a switch to all snow after 2/3 pm.
