...Very Warm and Uncomfortable the Remainder of This Afternoon...

Late afternoon and early evening temperatures will range from
near 90 degrees over west central Iowa to near 95 in south central
Iowa through late afternoon...then fall back into the 80s this
evening. Dewpoints continue in the lower 70s resulting in heat
indices that will reach the upper 90s to lower 100s during the
next few hours.

If you have outdoor plans this afternoon or early evening...take
appropriate precautions and avoid prolonged strenuous activity
and overexertion. Consider scaling back your activities to avoid
heat related illnesses.

The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine
to create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink
plenty of fluids and if you begin to feel ill due to the heat,
seek a cooler sheltered area or a building with air conditioning.

Hot weather is expected next week...especially Tuesday and Wednesday.
Portions of southern Iowa are expected to reach the 90s most of
next week. Keep up with later forecasts and statements for updates
on next week`s heat potential.
