Clouds build in this evening, rain & storms move in overnight
Warmer weather next week
QUAD CITIES, Iowa/Ill. (KWQC) -- YOUR FIRST ALERT FORECAST FROM CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIK MAITLAND:
Friday evening looks good for football. Clouds will increase and MOST of the area should stay dry. The farther west you (eastern Iowa) the more likely you might
be to need some rain gear just in case a few sprinkles or showers move into the area during the late evening, well ahead of the main rain event that will arrive
overnight. Wave 1 of the rain should last through the early morning hours of Saturday. Then, after a break, round 2 of showers and even some thunderstorms will move '
through the4 QCA during the afternoon through the evening hours before all the rain ends. During the afternoon some of the storms could become strong with some
gusty winds, but that will all be dependent on the extent of daytime heating we get after wave 1 of the rain ends in the morning. Any strong storms won’t likely
last too long. After Saturday we’ll get mostly dry conditions back until our next chance for some rain, albeit slim, toward the end of next week. Highs Saturday and Sunday are in the mid 70s and we climb to the mid 80s by
later next week.
TONIGHT: BECOMING CLOUDY. SHOWERS DEVELOP. LOW: 57. WIND: S - 5
SATURDAY: PARTLY SUNNY WITH OCCASIONAL SHOWERS AND STORMS. HIGH: 76°. WIND: W 5-10
SUNDAY: MOSTLY SUNNY. HIGH: 75°
