Share post:

A fast-moving storm system is expected to bring a 40 to 60 percent chance of thunderstorms to the Quad Cities area this afternoon. The National Weather Service has indicated a low threat of an isolated strong to severe storm, particularly in far northwest Illinois and parts of far eastern Iowa.

According to the National Weather Service, the main hazards in this Level 1 risk area include strong, gusty winds and hail up to quarter size. Additionally, all storms will produce lightning and downpours, which may reduce visibility. Residents are advised to have multiple ways to receive weather alerts and to move indoors if they hear thunder.

Looking ahead, the weather is forecast to be quiet on Wednesday and Thursday, providing a brief respite from the storms. However, the risk of showers and thunderstorms is expected to return on Friday and continue into Saturday. Temperatures will gradually warm from Wednesday through Saturday, with highs ranging from 68 to 80 degrees.
