While we get ready for August here in the Quad Cities places along the gulf coast are getting ready for hurricane season to really get going! Officially hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30...but there's a definite "busy time" from mid August through mid October. While September is typically the most active month in the Atlantic basin things generally start picking up in August! With that being said here's a graphic from the National Hurricane Center showing a couple areas they're watching for potential development! Here's the link to their site...

We've got a few thunderstorms popping up around the QCA this afternoon. Storms are developing in a hot and humid air mass just ahead of a cold front that is moving through the area today. Once the front passes this afternoon/evening the storms will end, and humidity will be noticeably lower Thursday! In the meantime, as storms continue south of the QC a few could provide small hail and gusty winds, so there's a Svr. T-Storm Watch in effect 'til 7pm south of the QC.

While the Mississippi River has been slowly RISING today, the forecasted crest in the QC has been slowly FALLING! Right now the river looks to be cresting and should slowly fall through the end of the week.

Even though river levels had been fairly low a few days ago the water is now rising extremely quickly on all rivers around the QC and for areas to the North. Even the Mississippi river will experience MAJOR flooding over the next few days in the Quad Cities. LeClaire Park, which has been hosting Bix events over the last few days, will more than likely be flooded this week according to the NWS in the Quad Cities.
