Widespread Severe Weather Outbreak Update

A powerful line of storms raked across the Plains and the Midwest Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning.

These storms held together and brought tornadoes and damaging winds to much of Iowa and Illinois.

At least 32 tornadoes were reported to the Storm Prediction Center Monday.

Storm Reports Monday Night

We had many tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings across the Mississippi and Illinois Valleys with tornadoes reported at the Davenport Municipal Airport, near De Witt, and Grand Mound in Iowa and near Ladd, Illinois (Bureau County).

Once the sun comes up Tuesday, we’ll see just how much damage was done by the long line of straight line winds.

We had wind gusts of 70 miles-per-hour reported in several hometowns and an 83 mile-per-hour wind gust near Davenport.

Wind Reports

Except for breezy conditions and a few isolated showers Tuesday evening to the north, quiet weather is expected through Friday.

However, we could be looking at a winter storm that’ll bring accumulating snow to the area Friday night and Saturday.

This will have to closely watched as we head toward the weekend.
