Weather Summary
National Weather Service Quad Cities IA IL
1208 PM CDT Fri Jul 21 2017

Strong storms moving across parts of eastern Iowa and western
Illinois produced torrential rain, damaging wind, and areas of
flash flooding overnight. Rainfall amounts ranged from zero at the
Burlington and Dubuque airports, to numerous reports of 1 and a
half, to 2 and a half inches from Cedar Rapids Iowa to Princeton
Illinois. Temperatures were unseasonably warm, with lows ranging
from 69 degrees at Independence and Davenport, to 77 degrees at
Keokuk.

Expect warm and humid conditions to prevail today and tonight with
highs in the 90s, lows in the 70s, and heat index readings in the
triple digits. Showers and thunderstorms will redevelop during
the afternoon and evening, especially over parts of northeast
Iowa, Wisconsin, and northwest Illinois. Additional rain, damaging
wind, and lightning will be the primary threats.

Be aware of your surroundings and take precautions. Areas which
received heavy rain over the past few days will be at greater risk
for flash flooding due to saturated ground. In addition, an
excessive heat warning is in effect from central Nebraska to west
central Illinois. This means it may be more difficult for your
body to cool itself due to the combination of heat and humidity.
