FIRST ALERT DAY Saturday for strong storms
Storms redevelop this afternoon, some possible severe
QUAD CITIES, Iowa/Ill. (KWQC) -- A FIRST ALERT DAY is in effect from until 9 p.m. Saturday as we have a level 1 to level 2 risk of strong or severe thunderstorms.
The first round that moved through this morning brought heavy rain and gusty winds.
A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is in effect from the Quad Cities to the south and southeast until midnight.
As a cold front approaches our area from the west, look for it to meet up with some very warm, moist, unstable air. This will allow storms to produce damaging winds and large hail. A few tornadoes are possible. This will move out before 10 p.m., and quieter conditions return.
Stay “Sky Aware” and keep alert to changing weather conditions through the day. Make sure you have several outlets to receive warnings during this period.
Once the storms exit late night, we’ll see clearing skies toward morning, followed by warm sunshine, pleasant temperatures and less humidity for your Sunday.
FIRST ALERT DAYS are issued to inform you of inconvenient, hazardous, or potentially dangerous weather in our viewing area--weather that could impact you and your family. Look for frequent updates on air, online, on our social media platforms and on the QC Weather App.
