QUAD CITIES, Iowa/Ill. (KWQC) - YOUR FIRST ALERT FORECAST FROM CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIK MAITLAND:

***FIRST ALERT DAY SATURDAY FOR EXTREME HEAT AND POSSIBLE STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS***

After a scorching Thursday there is the possibility of an isolated evening shower or storm as the heat and humidity combine to form some storm energy across areas

especially northeast of the Metro Quad Cities. We’ll see a slight break from the extreme heat and humidity on Friday as early cloud cover brings the chance for a light

shower or two early in the day. This will keep our highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Late in the evening and into Friday night more showers and storms are possible. Saturday

will be the peak of the heat, this week, with heat indexes likely in the 100s. We’ll also see a chance for strong to severe storms later Saturday, as well. The main threat will

be torrential rain and damaging wind. Saturday is a First Alert Day due to the uncomfortable heat indexes and storm chance! Shower and thunderstorm chances continue into next

week but on a daily basis will be pretty slim. Next week’s temperatures will stay closer to average with highs mostly in the 80s.

TONIGHT: ISOLATED EVENING SHOWER OR STORMS. THEN MAINLY CLEAR. LOW: 63°. WIND: LIGHT

FRIDAY: PARTLY SUNNY. CHANCE FOR A MORNING SHOWER OR STORM. STORMS POSSIBLE LATE. HIGH: 89°. WIND: S/SW 5-15/20

SATURDAY: MOSTLY SUNNY, WARM AND VERY HUMID. CHANCE FOR LATE SHOWERS AND STORMS. HEAT INDEX: 100-105. HIGH: 95°.
