QUAD CITIES, Iowa/Ill. (KWQC) -- Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms continue to move through portions of the TV6 viewing area on your Saturday afternoon. As the evening turns to night, these storms will continue to wane with the loss of daytime heating. Tonight will be rather pleasant with temperatures dropping into the low 60s. Come Sunday, temperatures will approach the 90-degree mark. A stray afternoon storm or two can’t be ruled out, but we should remain mostly dry throughout the day.

As we head into the start of the work week, big changes are upon us. We will closely monitor the threat of severe weather on Monday afternoon and evening. The Storm Prediction Center currently has most of the TV6 viewing area in a “level 1″ risk. This threat will need to be closely monitored, as some of the ingredients for organized severe weather will be in place.

Once we get past that, the heat will be rising. Dangerous temperatures and heat index values could exceed the triple digits by mid-week. As the “heat dome” continues to build in, the placement of this heat dome will play a key role in our storm chances for the week. Right now, it appears that a few complexes of storms may move through by mid-week, some of which could be severe.

Stay with TV6 for further updates.

TONIGHT: Storms end this evening, becoming mostly clear. Low: 61 Winds: SW 5-10 MPH

SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. Stray pop-up shower or storm in the afternoon. High: 90 Wind: W 5-10

MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Showers and thunderstorm chances in the afternoon. High: 91
