QUAD CITIES IA/IL (KWQC) -- YOUR FIRST ALERT FORECAST FROM CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIK MAITLAND:

***FIRST ALERT DAY FOR STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS TUESDAY FROM 3PM UNTIL 10PM***

Memorial Day has been warm and windy. Overnight the wind will stick around with gusts to 30 mph and strong storms stay west for most of the night. Closer to daybreak

Tuesday we could see some storms get to the Mississippi valley. Most of these storms will be weakening. However, some will have to be watched. Now, this sets up a few

scenarios for Tuesday, itself. If these storms remain strong enough early in the day they could push the afternoon formation zone farther south and east keeping the

later hours of Tuesday mainly storm free. And, if lingering cloud cover from these storms block out a lot of sun during the day we may, as mentioned, not see any

redevelopment of concern later in the day. However, if we can get storms to redevelop in the afternoon the greatest threat will be wind, heavy rain and some hail with

just a low threat for isolated tornadoes. The storms will move southeast of the are by late Tuesday evening. So, this will be a variable situation that will need to be

closely monitored during the day Tuesday. After Tuesday, we’ll see cooler and less humid weather for the rest of the week with highs in the 70s and rain chances later

Wednesday, then during the weekend and early next week.

TONIGHT: CLEAR TO PARTLY CLOUDY & WINDY. STORMS TOWARD DAYBREAK. LOW: 71. WIND: S 10-20/30

TUESDAY: PARTLY TO MOSTLY CLOUDY. OCCSNL. T-STORMS. SOME STRONG(PM?). HIGH: 85°. WIND: SW 15-20/30

WEDNESDAY: PARTLY CLOUDY. SLIGHT CHANCE FOR EVENING SHOWERS. HIGH: 74°.
