...High Heat and Humidity for the Next Few Hours...

Late afternoon and early evening temperatures will remain near
the 90 degree mark for the next two to three hours...then fall
this evening back into the 80s. Dewpoints have risen across the
affected area near a weak boundary creating heat indices that will
reach 98 to 104 F during the next few hours.

If you have outdoor plans this evening...take appropriate precautions
and avoid prolonged strenuous activities and overexertion. Consider
scaling back your activities to avoiding 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 may reach the 90s most of next week.
Keep up with later forecasts and statements for updates on next
week`s heat potential.
