Share post:

Quad Cities, IL/IA – As the Midwest braces for a shift in weather patterns, residents in Illinois and Iowa are advised to prepare for a potentially stormy weekend. 

The National Weather Service in the Quad Cities forecasts a sharp transition from today’s calm conditions to a weekend fraught with high winds, showers, and thunderstorms starting Friday afternoon.

The relative serenity of Thursday will soon give way to a tempestuous mix of weather events. By late Friday, the winds are expected to intensify, posing the initial threat, followed by a series of severe weather conditions. The meteorological forecast suggests temperatures will rise to a warmer range, accompanied by seasonable humidity, setting the stage for thunderstorms that may continue sporadically through to Sunday evening.

According to the National Weather Service, there is a possibility of severe thunderstorms late Friday, with concerns over damaging winds, hail, and even tornadoes. Saturday’s outlook is no less daunting, with scattered storms anticipated throughout the day and into the night, potentially leading to heavy rainfall and continued severe weather threats. The region could witness a repeat of these conditions on Sunday, with severe and heavy rainfalls as a substantial possibility.
