Forecast Discussion:

Monday morning's low was the first frost of the season affecting much of the Quad-City area, following a cold front associated with upper-level troughs that moved across the state over the weekend. Peak wind gusts at the airport got up to 43 mph just after midnight on Sunday morning. There were also some light precipitation amounts reported around the area. 

A weak ridge will move into the region the next couple of days, with some gradual warming expected, but then two more troughs are expected to bring high clouds and breezes on Wednesday afternoon - Thursday morning and again on Sunday. No precipitation is expected this week. Watch for subfreezing temperatures again on Tuesday morning and possibly Friday morning and next Monday morning. 

You may note that there has been periods of smoke the past week or so, especially on the southwest side of Prescott? This is due to prescribed burning being conducted by the National Forest Service to remove some of the dead fuels and help thin out dead fuels and brush, making the forest healthier.
