DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - Friday will be a day to stay Sky Aware as we’ll have the potential for severe weather across the entire TV6 viewing area. A First Alert Day is will be in effect from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
A Particularly Dangerous Situation TORNADO WATCH is in effect for the TV6 viewing area until 8 p.m.
A HIGH RISK (Level 5 out of 5) has been issued from the Quad Cities and areas south and southwest for the increased potential of tornadoes. A couple long-track, stronger tornadoes are a possibility. Moderate Risk (4 out 5) remains in place across the rest of the TV6 viewing area.
The primary threat will be damaging wind and tornadoes, with large hail a secondary threat.
A front will be the driving force as it slams into warm and humid air that will be as warm as 70° or more in spots. Dew points will be in the 50s to lower 60s. Two rounds of severe weather are possible. There could be a rogue band of storms early in the afternoon producing severe weather, but the main and more potentially destructive line will be moving from west to east between 4 and 7 p.m., with the line right over the Mississippi valley around the 5 o’clock hour.
