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

After a mild start to the day Thursday, the bottom is set to start dropping out during the evening as a cold front kicks up the wind and starts dropping the temperatures

from north to south. As a result, Friday we’ll be back to highs only in the 50s despite the mostly sunny skies. Saturday morning we could see some sub-freezing lows and a

good chance for frost. A FREEZE WATCH is already in effect and Saturday will be a First Alert Day because of the freeze potential for parts of the area. The weekend will

be in recovery mode as Saturday brings 50s to near 60 and highs in the upper 60s to near 70 and continued dry weather for Sunday. Early next week we’re already back into

the low 70s with some rain possible late Tuesday into Wednesday. Thursday we could see another drop in temps back to the 50s.

TONIGHT: PARTLY CLOUDY AND WINDY IN THE EVENING. MOSTLY CLEAR OVERNIGHT. LOW: 39°. WIND: N 5-10

FRIDAY: MOSTLY SUNNY TO PARTLY CLOUDY & COOLER. HIGH: 56°. WIND: N - 10

SATURDAY: SUNNY. HIGH: 60°
