Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
1107 AM CDT Thu Jul 21 2016

It was another hot and muggy morning across Iowa with temperatures
rising into the mid to upper 80s and dewpoints hovering in the mid
70s. This was producing heat indices in the 90s to low 100s. Skies
were clear to mostly clear and winds were from the southwest at
around 10 mph.

Dangerously hot weather will persist for the next few days, with
high temperatures in the 90s and heat index values topping at over
100 degrees each day and exceeding 110 degrees at times,
especially today. Slight thunderstorm chances will exist at times,
but overall the threat of severe weather is low. On Saturday night
into Sunday a cool front will make its way across the region,
providing some relief early next week with daily high temperatures
falling back into the 80s. Thunderstorm chances will return to the
forecast around midweek.
