Weather information and non-school event cancellations

Digging out at KHQA on Wednesday, Feb. 5.

A record low temperature was set this morning of -11 degrees in Quincy. This temp broke the old record of -8 degrees set in 1905.

We'll have clouds Friday night with a chance of snow. Lows will be near 7 above zero. Snow chances are in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday.

Expect light amounts for total accumulation ... basically a dusting to one inch from Quincy southwest.
And 1 to 2 inches is possible from Quincy northeast by the time all is said and done Sunday.

Around one inch will be possible in Quincy, so it's not a big storm, but enough snow that driving conditions should be slick at times in areas.
