Big HEAT still on tap for next week
Storm chances arrive for the weekend
QUAD CITIES, Iowa/Ill. (KWQC) -- YOUR FIRST ALERT FORECAST FROM CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIK MAITLAND:
For the weekend we’ll see a chance for scattered afternoon showers and a few thunderstorms on Saturday with mid 80s, then mid to upper 80s Sunday with partly cloudy skies.
As we start next week the 90s return and we should be getting warmer every day. With heat and humidity on the rise we’ll get highs near 100 by Wednesday and Thursday with
heat indexes potentially rising to 110 or above! The only relief could come from the chance for occasional thunderstorms that ride the edge of the heat. These are hard to
predict much more than a day out but if we get a few rounds of these the following day’s heat could be tempered, a bit. It will be a wait and see game but if we do get any
rain it could be heavy, and any storms could become severe with all the heat energy around. It looks like a bit of a cool down might be arriving by next Friday but coming
from triple digit heat we might only see that “cool down” drop us back to the mid 90s.
