Here's how much snow fell in the Quad Cities on Jan. 25

Quad Citizens across the area woke up to a layer of snow coating the ground on Wednesday and watched more fall throughout the early morning. How much did we get?

MOLINE, Ill. โ€” It's snowing again in the Quad Cities and you know what that means: closings, delays, treacherous roads and maybe a bit of winter fun. 

As the day progresses, StormTrack8 is mainly concerned with refreezing as temps drop during the evening hours. 

The National Weather Service has a tool that compiles snowfall reports as they are made available, which is accessible by clicking/tapping here.

In the early morning, snow covered the roads and made for hazardous conditions as the morning commutes began. Around this time, the National Weather Service predicted a total of about 1-4 inches of snow depending on specific locations.

Snowfall lightened as we reached the afternoon, but experts are saying to expect about another inch throughout the day.

In a tweet published at 12:48 p.m., NWS Quad Cities showed off a chart of snowfall amounts in different cities across the area, with most places seeing about two to four inches. Some areas in Illinois south and southeast of the QC reached as much as five inches.
