IT HAS BEEN ANOTHER WARM AND MUGGY NIGHT ACROSS THE REGION. DESPITE
LIGHT AND VARIABLE WINDS TEMPERATURES HAVE ONLY FALLEN INTO THE

SOUTHERN MINNESOTA AND NORTHEAST IOWA. MEANWHILE SCATTERED
THUNDERSTORMS HAVE AFFECTED SOUTHERN IOWA WITH LOCALLY HEAVY
RAINFALL.

THE WARM...HUMID...AND ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN WILL CONTINUE THROUGH
THE WEEKEND. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL GENERALLY BE IN THE UPPER 80S TO
AROUND 90 TODAY...THEN WARM INTO THE LOWER 90S IN SOME AREAS ON
SATURDAY AND ACROSS MUCH OF IOWA ON SUNDAY. HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL
PEAK IN THE 100 TO 105 DEGREE RANGE IN MOST AREAS EACH DAY.
THUNDERSTORMS WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE AT TIMES...ESPECIALLY LATE FRIDAY
INTO EARLY SATURDAY AND AGAIN AROUND SUNDAY NIGHT.

EARLY NEXT WEEK A COOL FRONT WILL BRING SOME RELIEF FROM THE HEAT
BUT MOST AREAS WILL STILL SEE HIGHS IN THE UPPER 70S TO MID 80S. A
SECOND COLD FRONT WILL APPROACH AROUND TUESDAY...PROMPTING A
PROLONGED PERIOD OF RAINFALL CHANCES WITH HEAVY RAINFALL POSSIBLE.
BEHIND THIS SECOND FRONT TEMPERATURES WILL COOL FURTHER TOWARD
