Heat wave rolls on with hottest day likely today, severe thunderstorms possible overnight

Des Moines, Iowa – Expect another hot day across north Iowa today as meteorologist Allan Curtis, at the National Weather Service, says unseasonable high temperatures the past few days will be rising even higher this afternoon.

While the daily heat index has been creeping into triple digits since Friday, no heat advisories or warnings have been issued — not yet.

In addition to the high heat, there’s the possibility for severe weather late today into tonight.

Oftentimes, big storms will be followed by a change in the weather but that won’t likely be the case this time.

Iowa’s top hot spot on Sunday was 95-degrees in Charles City. The normal high for this time of year is in the upper 70s to low 80s.
