FIRST ALERT DAY in effect Saturday for excessive heat
Triple digit heat indexes in the afternoon
DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - ***A FIRST ALERT DAY remains in effect until 9 PM Saturday for excessive heat & humidity***
Heat index readings will be in the triple digits through this evening.
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. Check on the elderly and young children, who are especially vulnerable to these types of conditions. Don’t forget to take care of your pets--bring them into the air conditioning, and make sure they have plenty of fresh water to drink.
An EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING covers most of the area with a HEAT ADVISORY in remaining counties. Both will be in effect until 9 PM this evening.
Sunday will still be warmer but there will be rain chances which may limit the heat from reaching Saturday’s levels. The real relief comes early next week with highs back in the 70′s to low 80s.
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.
