Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
508 PM CDT Thu Jul 20 2017

The excessive heat warnings and heat advisories continue through
Saturday. We had yet another hot day across Iowa for Thursday. The
temperature at the Des Moines metro was 99 degrees at 4 pm. Waterloo
had a temperature of 89, and it was 99 in Ottumwa as well. Heat index
values soared to the 110 to 115 degree range from Perry and Ames, to
locations south. Winds were generally from the west to southwest at 5
to 10 mph.

Highs through Saturday will be in the mid to upper 90s
with dewpoints following close behind. Other than a slight chance for
showers and thunderstorms overnight tonight and Friday night, a
reprieve from the excessive heat is not expected until early next
week. Sunday and into the week temperatures will be in the mid to
upper 80s which is quite a welcome change from what we will experience
the next few days. Dewpoints will also be lower leaving it feeling
much more comfortable outside.
