QUAD CITIES, Iowa/Ill. (KWQC) - The first day of astronomical summer will be coming in hot, with highs expected to reach the middle to upper 90′s, and heat index readings approaching or even exceeding 105 degrees.

Heat Advisory Tuesday for the QCA
Heat Advisory Tuesday for the QCA(em)

This heat will be dangerous to those who spend too much time outdoors without properly taking breaks, staying hydrated and finding relief in cooler or air-conditioned spots.

A front will sweep into the region by early evening, producing a chance for showers and a few thunderstorms. Some of those storms could become strong to severe, with the main threats being damaging winds and hail. There is a level 1 to level 2 risk in the TV6 viewing area from 7 p.m. to near or just before midnight. That same front should provide us with slightly milder air, dropping temperatures into the upper 80′s to low 90s by Wednesday.

Level 2 risk issued for parts of the TV6 viewing area.
