10:15 p.m. Update: An area of light rain is currently working over the Quad Cities, but all storms have pushed off to the east and no additional severe weather is expected tonight. Isolated showers will still be possible through the early morning hours Wednesday, but completely dry conditions are expected by 9 a.m. Our next rain chance doesn't look to return until late Thursday night into Friday.

Wednesday will be much cooler than Tuesday thanks to the cold front that just passed over us. We'll start the day around 70 degrees, but only warm up to around 86 in the afternoon. In addition to the cooler temperatures, the humidity will be much lower Wednesday than today.
