Its been a grab bag of summer weather around the Quad Cities today with some hefty showers and storms for most, to more of the sultry air farther south. Where the rain has fallen amounts have ranged between a quarter to an inch and a quarter, and we’re not quite done with the wet weather yet.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be re-developing ahead of an approaching cool front that is expected to pass through before sunrise on Wednesday. This coverage will come in waves as disturbances riding along the periphery of the hot dome of air move in from the west. The next wave arrives by evening with the final wave arriving during the wee hours of the morning. Like today, we’ll likely add another quarter to an inch and a quarter in many spots before the front drifts on by.
It stays dry from Wednesday through Friday afternoon as drier and more seasonal summer air takes over.
Warmer, more humid conditions spill in for the upcoming weekend with a chance for a shower or thunderstorm late each night.
