Quad Cities, IA/IL – Residents in the Quad Cities area are advised to stay vigilant as an active weather system approaches, bringing potential showers and thunderstorms starting Friday and extending through the weekend. 

According to the National Weather Service Quad Cities, while the severe weather risk has somewhat decreased, the area should brace for strong to severe storms, with the likelihood of heavy rain, especially on Saturday night. The National Weather Service forecasts a mix of mild temperatures and showers for Friday afternoon, with conditions ripe for potential thunderstorms into the evening. Scattered storms are expected, some of which could turn severe. Residents are encouraged to monitor the weather closely if planning outdoor activities.

Despite the threat of an active weather weekend, Saturday may offer a respite with drier conditions and minimal storm coverage during the day. However, the National Weather Service cautions that the evening could see a ramp-up in storm activity, urging residents to stay informed on the latest weather updates. An emphasis on heavy rainfall over the weekend, particularly on Saturday night through early Sunday, raises concerns for urban and low-lying areas. The forecast predicts widespread rain with isolated instances of 2+ inches, particularly along and west of the Mississippi River. The risk of flash flooding in these areas is significant, and residents should heed local advisories and prepare accordingly.
