The National Weather Service of the Quad Cities is saying it's going to be a hot and steamy day in the Quad Cities. It only makes sense it's going to feel like a very hot summer day because today is the first official day of summer!

According to the National Weather Service of the Quad Cities, we are going to experience hot and humid temperatures across the area today. Peak heat index values will be around 100° to 105°  this afternoon.

The hot and humid weather means a Heat Advisory has been issued for the Quad Cities area today. The Heat Advisory will go into effect starting at noon and ending at 7 p.m.
