DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - ***FIRST ALERT DAY Friday from 3 to 8 p.m. for strong storms***

Strong storms are possible along a cold front Friday.

Showers and storms will become more numerous prior to sunrise. While severe weather is not expected, a few storms will produce half-inch hail and torrential downpours.

The heaviest rainfall is still expected to stay northeast of our area, but there will be localized 1″+ rainfall totals Friday morning. If the atmosphere can recover a few strong to severe storms may be possible in the afternoon and evening, but that will depend on cloud cover which may keep us cooler and more stable.

For this reason a First Alert Day is in effect but may be canceled if storms don’t develop. We are looking for additional storm chances Saturday night into Sunday ahead of heat and humidity that will stick around into next week.

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.
