QUAD CITIES, Iowa/Ill. (KWQC) - YOUR FIRST ALERT FORECAST FROM CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIK MAITLAND:
***FIRST ALERT DAY TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY FOR POTENTIAL 100°+ HEAT INDEXES AND STRONG STORMS***
Monday night will be on the mild side with lows in the mid 60s. Clouds will increase and well after midnight another round of showers and thunderstorms will form.
Portions of the QCA - mainly along and south of Hwy. 30 - will see storms with the potential for heavy rain, strong winds and hail. These areas are in a Marginal risk
for severe weather overnight. Tuesday morning storms will be moving out of the area and into the afternoon skies will become sunny and temperatures will head into the low 90s
with enough humidity to push heat indexes into the triple digits in spots. Another hot and humid day is in the works for Wednesday, however with a front moving
through the area clouds and t-storms could prevent excessive heat from taking over the area depending on the timing of any rain that might form. If the potential
for extreme heat materializes the National Weather Service could issue Heat Advisories.
