Storm chances early Monday
Hot, Humid & Unsettled Next Week
QUAD CITIES, Iowa/Ill. (KWQC) - ***First Alert Day in effect most of Monday and Tuesday for heat, storms***
It turned out to be a great day with sunshine and highs in the 80s. Active weather sets up in the Quad Cities area the next few days. A FIRST ALERT DAY will be in effect starting tomorrow morning and will continue until Tuesday night. First will come the heat and humidity. This will mean highs in the upper 80s/90s tomorrow will feel close to 100 degrees or worse in the afternoon. The other reason for the First Alert Day will be because of storm chances. A slight risk (level 2/5) is in most of the Quad Cities area with a marginal risk in southern counties. This is going to be because of a chance for storms in the morning into the afternoon. This round is looking to have all types of severe weather possible. We are expecting dry time while we head to the fireworks. Shortly after the fireworks, another round returns from the north. This round is looking to be into Illinois counties. This will keep tracking south overnight with dry conditions for the morning commute Tuesday. Although we will see this storm activity, there will be an even warmer day ahead into Tuesday with more spots seeing triple digit heat index values. There will still be warm days with storm chances later this week, so stay updated.
