Meanwhile, the western Pacific Ocean is  fairly active.  Typhoon Meranti made landfall on the island of Jinmen near Xiamen, China with sustained winds of 145 mph.  Prior to making landfall in China, the powerful typhoon slammed parts of Taiwan, when the storm was packing 230 mph winds.

Another typhoon, Malakas, is on its heels.  As of Wednesday evening, the winds were 90 mph, but the typhoon is expected to strengthen over open water.   Eventually, the storm is supposed to track between Taiwan and the Yaeyama Islands of Japan around Saturday.  Click here for the latest satellite loop.

It was a quiet day across eastern Iowa with a mix of clouds and sun.  More clouds were found earlier in the day.   Here is a viewer photo of the sunrise, and another of the sunset.

Perseid Meteor Shower 2016

Perseids

The annual Perseid Meteor Shower is this week.

Once per year, the Earth tracks through debris caused by the Swift-Tuttle comet. This is what causes the Perseid Meteor Shower every year in August. NASA is calling for about 200 meteors per hour during the peak early Friday morning. That is about twice as many meteors than normal – possibly due to Jupiter’s gravitational field.

The best viewing conditions would be in a dark sky, between midnight and dawn on Friday, August 12. Meteors can also be seen in the early morning hours on Saturday, August 13.

meteor-Perseids-predicted-ZHR-2016-e1469455637560

The graph shows the number of meteors visible. The left axis shows the number of meteors per hour. The bottom axis shows the date. 200 meteors per hour can be seen late Thursday into early Friday.

Excessive Heat Watch and 100° Heat

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat watch for most of the area. Heat indices (the combination of the air temperature and the dew point) are expected to exceed 100°, and could be as high as 110°. The watch begins for some western counties on Wednesday and the rest of the area on Thursday. The entire watch will end on Saturday.

Excessive Heat Watch MW

 

Actual air temperatures will top out in the mid 90s, which isn’t too far off from what we’ve seen in the past couple of years. However, the National Weather Service hasn’t issued an excessive heat watch since July 2011.

warmesthighs1216

Though it will feel like 100+° during the afternoon on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, air temperatures have not been that warm since 2013. The chart below shows the last time the temperature was 100° or warmer:

City Date Temperature
Waterloo 7/25/12 104°
Dubuque 8/30/13 100°
Cedar Rapids 7/25/12 101°
Iowa City 9/8/13 105°
