Weather Summary
National Weather Service Quad Cities IA IL
719 PM CDT Sat Oct 21 2017

A mix of clouds and sunshine, well above average temperatures, and
breezy southerly winds were found across the region Saturday ahead
of a strong cold front in place across the eastern Great Plains.
High temperatures were around 15 to 20 degrees above normal for
late October, and ranged from 75 in Independence, to 81 in the
Quad Cities and Iowa City.

The cold front will continue moving east, and will approach the
Mississippi River overnight. Showers and thunderstorms will
develop along and ahead of the front, with some having the
potential to be strong. The primary hazards with these
thunderstorms, will be damaging winds, isolated tornadoes, and
heavy rainfall. Low temperatures will range from the middle 50s to
lower 60s. Leftover rain showers with the cold front will slowly
exit the region on Sunday, giving way to partly sunny skies by the
afternoon. Much cooler air will be ushered in across the
Mississippi River Valley behind the front as high temperatures
only climb into the lower to middle 60s.
