Weekend forecast for Iowa and Illinois: Dense fog and thunderstorms expected in the afternoon

Davenport, IA – Heavy fog swept through the Quad Cities area this morning, reducing visibility and creating hazardous driving conditions. Residents are advised to drive with caution, use low beams, and maintain extra stopping distance between vehicles.

According to the U.S. National Weather Service Quad Cities, fog is expected to lift after sunrise, leading to mostly sunny skies with temperatures rising into the mid-70s. Despite improved visibility, scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected this afternoon, with a 30 to 40% chance of precipitation.

The forecast for Saturday calls for a break from the wet weather, with dry conditions and mostly sunny skies. Temperatures are expected to range between 79 and 83 degrees, providing an ideal day for outdoor activities.

The respite will be short-lived, however, as humid conditions return on Sunday, bringing another round of showers and thunderstorms. High temperatures on Sunday are expected to reach the mid-80s, with a 20 to 50 percent chance of rain.
