Record Heat Predicted for Region
After one of the cooler Julys in years, where low temperatures dipped into the 30s, a brutal heat wave is expected to wash over Iowa this weekend.
Meteorologist Rod Donovan at the National Weather Service says summer may be starting to wind down, but the temperatures in the forecast are definitely heating up. In fact, Donovan says record heat is possible and heat advisories are likely to be issued in another few days.
There’s no immediate relief in the forecast, as highs statewide are expected to be in the 90s for several days, possibly into next weekend.
