A First Alert Day will be in effect from 1 to 8 p.m. Tuesday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday for excessive heat. Heat indexes will be in the triple digits Tuesday afternoon to the southwest of the Quad Cities. The heat and humidity will peak for the week Wednesday. Temperatures will warm to 90-95+ degrees with heat index values expected to near 100 in spots near the QC and south. There will be a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the day that could stop our temperatures from reaching the 90s.

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. After the front moves in later Wednesday, there will be a drop in temperatures and humidity Thursday.

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.
