Share post:

Quad Cities, IA/IL – Just days after being battered by powerful winds, portions of Iowa and Illinois are on high alert as the National Weather Service in Quad Cities forecasts another onslaught of severe weather. 

Late tonight into early Tuesday morning, a robust storm system will bring a line of severe thunderstorms capable of producing damaging winds reaching speeds of up to 60 mph. These storms, moving rapidly northeast at a speed of 50 mph, pose significant risks of property damage and power outages.

Residents are strongly advised to prepare for the impending severe weather by securing loose outdoor items, reviewing safety plans, and ensuring they have multiple reliable methods to receive emergency alerts. The unseasonably warm and sunny conditions today might give a false sense of security, making the sudden arrival of severe weather particularly dangerous.

The weather service has indicated that this turbulent pattern may continue, with another chance of showers and a few storms projected for Wednesday. Community members are urged to stay vigilant and monitor updates as the situation develops.
