It's almost the weekend and there's a lot of events happening in the Quad Cities, so I'm hoping rain and storms won't spoil that, but according to our news partners at WHBF, it looks like storms could roll in to the Quad Cities later tonight.

OurQuadCities.com says there's potential for overnight showers and thunderstorms late Friday night and a small risk of those storms being severe.

Storms are expected to arrive after midnight and into the early hours on Saturday.

The National Weather Service of the Quad Cities says the hot and humid weather at the start of the weekend will be replaced by more seasonable conditions, as a cold front moves through the region tonight into Saturday. Forecasters say this will be accompanied by chances for showers and storms.

Storms could bring strong winds and large hail, so keep that in mind when you go to bed and secure anything outdoors to ensure you don't experience any damage.

Once storms pass through weather experts in the Quad Cities says that should bring about some cooler weather on Sunday.

I know my yard could use a drink and I'm sure farmers would appreciate the moisture. Since June the Quad Cities has only seen about 6.88" of rain when we normally get 13.21" of rain, according to OurQuadCities.com. August has been the driest month so far this summer. We're 2" below normal for rainfall.

So, Mother Nature.....let it rain. Just don't let it rain on all the great events we have going on in the Quad Cities this weekend.
