Another Round of Rain Coming Up!

There's more rain in the Quad Cities forecast as a cold front targets our area later tonight!  Showers and t-storms are likely after midnight and through the first part of our Thursday, before we clear out Thursday night.  Behind the front fall-like temps arrive starting Friday, with highs in the middle 70s! 

As far as the rain goes, portions of the area could see close to 1 inch!  Here's a rainfall outlook from the NWS HPC...

More Rain on the Way!!!

A low pressure system will track across the Quad Cities Sunday afternoon into your Monday.  It'll usher in some much needed rain.  In fact, some weather models are showing neighborhoods around the QC could pick up an inch of rain or even a bit more.  The areas colored in blue have the best chance of picking up an inch or more by Monday afternoon.  We'll keep you posted!

Saturday's Storm Reports...

The Quad Cities welcomed some much needed rain on Saturday.  But, of course Mother Nature didn't bring the rain in quietly.  The severe storms caused a lot of wind damage around the QCA on Saturday and the storms didn't just wreak havoc here, but also to our east.  All of the blue dots represent reports of wind damage (201 reports) and there was even a report of a tornado in northwest Indiana Saturday night.
