Earlier this week, we mentioned how the weather has been quiet so far this spring. We've only seen one Severe Thunderstorm Warning issued from the National Weather Service of the Quad Cities, and that was back in April for some southern counties in the listening area. Don't expect any severe weather or rain anytime soon, especially this weekend!

If you were hoping for hot weather to go out on the Mississippi River, swim in a pool or get your tan on, your wish was been granted. Starting on Friday, highs will be in the upper 80's and a little breezy, with winds gusting as high as 20 mph. Saturday and Sunday is going to be warmer. Highs will be in the upper 80's and even reach the lower 90's on Saturday and Sunday.
