A few showers are possible Friday afternoon along a cold front that will bring cooler temperatures for the weekend. We could be seeing more showers and thunderstorms Sunday into early next week.
The Mississippi and Illinois Valleys desperately need some rain. Prior to today, it's only rained two times this July in the Quad Cities (July 8 and 9) for a total of 0.73".
This is, by far, the driest month in 2013.
In a typical July, we pick up 4.29" of rain in the Quad Cities.
