Storms Possible Tonight and Wednesday

The evening is going to be dry with temperatures slowly falling into the 80s. Storms are possible late tonight…after 2 or 3 AM. There is no risk of severe weather at this time with the overnight storms. Due to the high humidity level, the overnight lows only drop to the low 70s.

The showers/storms end early in the morning. Wednesday turns out to be another hot and humid day with temperatures near 90 degrees. Storms redevelop after 2 or 3 PM with a few storm potentially severe with large hail and damaging winds as the primary threats. The storms end during the evening then the sky becomes mostly clear.

Low temperatures Thursday morning and Friday morning are a little cooler…mid 60s…signs of slight less humid conditions. During the day it is still hot with highs near 90 each day. Thursday is mostly sunny with a slight chance for an afternoon storm. A little better chance of storms late Thursday night into Friday morning.

A cold front finally pushes through Saturday with a chance of more storms. The best part of this will be the cooler and less humid conditions to follow Sunday through Tuesday.

Dangerous Heat

A Heat Advisory is in effect for parts of eastern Iowa for the rest of the afternoon. The heat indices are expected to exceed 100 degrees. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.

DO NOT leave a child or animal in the car in this heat…even if you leave the window open a little…DON’T do it.  It can be deadly for them.


Too much heat is dangerous. Last year 94 people died, across the US, due to the heat. Use caution as the heat continues through the week.
