Quad Cities, IA/IL – The Quad Cities area is gearing up for a potentially severe weather weekend, with Sunday posing the highest threat for tornadoes. While Saturday is expected to bring pleasant weather, significant changes are forecasted as the weekend progresses.

Saturday will be a respite with plenty of sunshine and highs in the 70s. According to the US National Weather Service Quad Cities Iowa/Illinois, this calm weather will not last, as severe weather is predicted to move into the region overnight into Sunday.

Given the heightened risk on Sunday, residents are advised to prepare for severe weather by ensuring multiple ways to receive weather warnings. This includes weather radios, smartphone alerts, and local news updates. It is also crucial to have a safety plan, identifying the safest location in your home or workplace to take shelter in the event of a tornado.
