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

***FIRST ALERT DAY FOR EXTREME HEAT SATURDAY NOON TILL 9PM***

A big taste of humidity on Friday and, for some, the cloudy sky kept the heat from being over-intense. That might not be the case on Saturday as we have a First Alert

Day in effect along with a Weather Service Heat Advisory as we could see highs in the mid 90s and heat indexes in the range of 100 to 108! Later Saturday night into

Sunday we’ll have the possibility of showers and t-storms. The extent of any leftover rain and clouds will have an impact on Sunday’s temperatures and cloud cover. We

might only see Sunday highs in the mid to upper 80s to low 90sand it will all depend on the extent of the rain and cloudiness. Late Sunday into Monday we’ll have another

chance for some showers and storms with heavy rain. This front will drop through the area leading to cooler and more comfortable weather early next week. Highs will only

hit the low to mid 80s and the humidity will drop through the first half of the week. More warmth and humidity return later next week.

TONIGHT: PARTLY CLOUDY TO MOSTLY CLEAR AND WARM. LOW: 71°. WIND: SE/S 5-10

SATURDAY: MOSTLY SUNNY. WARM AND MORE HUMID. HEAT INDEX: 100-108. HIGH: 95°. WIND: S - 10

SUNDAY: MOSTLY CLOUDY. SCT. SHOWERS AND A FEW STORMS POSSIBLE. HIGH: 89°.
