QUAD CITIES, Iowa/Ill. (KWQC) -- An upper-level system will pivot through our area Tuesday leading to several chances for showers and storms.

This is one of those cases where there will be dry hours, but off-and-on showers are likely at any time Tuesday. The timeframe of biggest concern will be from 2-8 p.m. for a few strong storms with hail and high winds a primary threat. An isolated tornado and funnel clouds can’t be ruled out in NW Illinois. The amount of severe weather will depend on how warm we get, thus if we have more rain this morning our severe chances will be lower. There will be patchy fog late tonight into early Wednesday morning.

Showers will linger into Wednesday morning keeping us to the low 70s for highs. After all is said and done, some areas will pick up over an inch of rain while most areas pick up a quarter inch.

The rest of the week will be dry and sunny with warmer temps eventually getting back to the 80s this weekend.

TODAY: Scattered storms. High: 76º. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.

TONIGHT: Scattered showers. Patchy fog late. Low: 61º Winds: NE 0-5 mph.

TOMORROW: Showers, cloudy and cooler. High: 73º.
