Another winner of a day out there as temperatures just barely reached near 80 for daytime highs in and around the Quad Cities. Keeping an eye on our next weather system which is poised just to our northwest. This will bring a few showers..maybe even a thunderstorm into the forecast before we dry out for the upcoming holiday weekend.
Scattered cloudiness will continue tonight as overnight lows dip around the 60 degree mark. Expect a few more clouds on our Thursday as a system pulls in from the northwest. Some models are hinting that a renegade shower could sneak in tomorrow morning, but the better chances and coverage still appear to arrive toward evening as a cold front slides on in. Rainfall is not too great with amounts around a tenth of an inch.
Brighter skies will return Friday and continue into the holiday weekend with daytime highs in the lower 80s.
