Quad Cities, IA/IL – The Quad Cities region is on alert as the National Weather Service projects a turbulent week of weather ahead. 

Today’s conditions boast mostly sunny skies with high temperatures reaching the mid-70s to low 80s. However, tranquility is set to shift dramatically come Tuesday, with forecasts predicting a high likelihood of severe storms. Residents should anticipate two distinct rounds of storms—one early in the day and another potentially unfolding in the afternoon through to Tuesday night.

As the week progresses, the likelihood of rain is expected to taper off, culminating in a noticeable cool down. Authorities emphasize the significance of early preparations to mitigate the impact of the storms. Recommended measures include securing emergency supplies, identifying safe locations, and solidifying family communication plans, especially as the forecast accuracy sharpens the day before the storms. To facilitate timely alerts, officials advise ensuring that all mobile devices are set to receive Weather Emergency Alerts (WEAs).

For detailed planning and safety strategies, citizens can access resources and updates at the National Weather Service’s dedicated webpage weather.gov/safety/tornado. Community members are reminded to remain vigilant and to prioritize safety in the face of rapidly changing weather conditions.
