More mild and dry weather, ahead
A little cooler by Thursday with more smoke to fill our skies
QUAD CITIES, Iowa/Ill. (KWQC) -- YOUR FIRST ALERT FORECAST FROM CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIK MAITLAND:
The week ahead will be fairly inactive in terms of weather but it will be milder, overall. Unfortunately, we’ll be having to watch the continued dry conditions
get us further toward drought, and air quality might become negatively impacted by smoke from Canadian fires. Low to mid 80s with sun return Wednesday. There will be a
bit of a cool down Thursday and Friday with highs in the 70s. Dry weather continues for the holiday weekend with low to mid 80s and more sunshine into Memorial
Day. It looks like we might have thicker smoke arrive later Wednesday and Thursday and some of it might make it down to the surface. If it’s thick enough, those with
respiratory issues might be advised to stay indoors and, outdoors, we might even be able to smell it and see decreased visibilities!
TONIGHT: MOSTLY CLEAR. LOW: 54°. WIND: CALM
WEDNESDAY: MOSTLY SUNNY. BECOMING WINDY. HIGH: 83°. WIND: NE 5-15/25
THURSDAY: PARTLY CLOUDY AND COOLER. HIGH: 73°
