Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
507 PM CDT Mon Jul 17 2017

Although this was expected to be our coolest day of the week, heat
and humidity are still making the outdoors feel uncomfortable this
afternoon. Temperatures are in the mid 80s to low 90s, with heat
indices climbing to near 100 at times.

Oppressive heat and humidity cranks up for the rest of the week as a
strong ridge of high pressure parks over the central tier of the
country. Highs will climb into the 90s over central and southern Iowa.
Dew points in the 70s will push heat indices over 100 degrees during
the afternoon and early evening hours. Overnight lows will only fall
into the 70s, possibly even the low 80s some nights at a few
locations. Slightly cooler temperatures are expected in the northern
portions of the state.

Chances for late day and overnight thunderstorms dot the forecast, but
the best chances will remain in northern Iowa on Tuesday and Wednesday
nights. Below normal precipitation will likely continue for most areas
to the south.
