Sorensen reports that large hail, damaging winds, and tornados are a real possibility for the hours between 4pm and 7pm in the Quad Cities, and an hour or so on either side of that time period to the southwest and northeast, respectively.
Be alert for watches and warnings this afternoon, and be prepared to take shelter if necessary.
