WEATHER SUMMARY FOR IOWA  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DES MOINES IA  
1114 AM CDT TUE JUL 16 2019  
 
IT WAS ANOTHER MILD NIGHT ACROSS THE STATE WITH LOWS RANGING FROM THE  
MID 60S TO THE UPPER 60S, WITH SOUTHERN AND PARTS OF SOUTHEAST IOWA  
THE COOLEST THANKS TO CLEARER SKIES. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ALSO  
MOVED ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE STATE, NAMELY WESTERN AND NORTHERN IOWA,  
WHERE A FEW LUCKY SPOTS SAW AS MUCH AS 1 TO 2 PLUS INCHES OF RAIN THIS  
MORNING. TO THE DISMAY OF MANY IN CENTRAL IOWA, THE AFOREMENTIONED  
SHOWERS AND STORMS DISSIPATED QUICKLY BEFORE MANY COULD SEE RAIN. AS  
OF LATE THIS MORNING, NEARLY ALL THE RAIN HAD FADED OUT EXCEPT FOR A  
SMALL CLUSTER OF STORMS ACROSS FAR NORTHWEST IOWA MOVING INTO  
MINNESOTA. TEMPERATURES ALSO REMAINED A BIT ON THE MILD SIDE THANKS  
TO CLOUD COVER, WITH MANY AREAS STILL IN THE MID TO UPPER 70S.  
 
THE MAIN STORY THIS WEEK CONTINUES TO BE THE HEAT THAT WILL BEGIN TO  
BUILD IN TODAY AND THROUGH THE WEEK. HIGHS TODAY WILL PREDOMINANTLY  
TOP OUT IN THE UPPER 80S, WHILE A FEW SPOTS MAY GET TO 90 AS SUNSHINE  
BREAKS OUT THIS AFTERNOON. WEDNESDAY WILL BE THE FIRST DAY OF HOT  
TEMPERATURES FOR MANY WITH AREAS SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 30 LIKELY TO SEE  
TEMPERATURES IN THE LOW TO MID 90S. THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY CONTINUE  
TO LOOK LIKE THE HOTTEST DAYS OF THE WEEK WITH MUCH OF CENTRAL AND  
SOUTHERN IOWA FORECAST TO SEE MID AND UPPER 90S. A FEW UNLUCKY SPOTS  
MAY EVEN TOUCH 100. THROW IN SOME HUMIDITY AND HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL  
OFTEN RESIDE IN THE 100 TO 105 RANGE AND FLIRT WITH VALUES AROUND 110  
AT TIMES. THANKFULLY, THE HEAT WAVE LOOKS TO BE RELATIVELY SHORT WITH  
MID 80S RETURNING TO BY EARLY NEXT WEEK.  
 
IF OUTSIDE FOR ANY SIGNIFICANT PERIODS OF TIME THIS WEEK, BE SURE TO  
DRESS COOL, SEEK OUT SHADE OR AIR CONDITIONING, WEAR SUNSCREEN, AND  
STAY HYDRATED!
