Weather Summary
National Weather Service Quad Cities IA IL
716 AM CDT Sat Jul 15 2017

Clear skies and light to calm winds were common across the region
Saturday morning, as high pressure was centered across eastern
Iowa and northwest Illinois. Patchy dense fog formed in areas
where winds were calm, allowing for brief reductions of
visibility to below a quarter mile at times. Low temperatures
ranged from 52 in Cedar Rapids and Davenport, to 61 in Keokuk.

A mix of sun and clouds is on tap for today as the high pressure
slowly moves eastward. A warm front stretching from central Iowa
to northeast Missouri will slowly move north across the region
this afternoon, allowing for an increase in humidity through this
evening. High temperatures will climb into the lower and middle
80s. An upper level disturbance and a weak surface cold front will
move from Wisconsin into northeast Iowa overnight, and will help
spawn scattered showers and thunderstorms over eastern Iowa and
northwest Illinois. The threat of severe weather is low, with the
primary threats from thunderstorms being frequent lightning,
gusty winds, and heavy rainfall. Low temperatures will drop into
the middle to upper 60s.
