Heat Wave to Hit on Monday

After a cool morning with some overnight lows in the 50s, forecasters say Iowa is in for a “prolonged heat event” next week. Meteorologist Alex Krull, at the National Weather Service, says the switch from July to August will bring us some excessively hot days, with highs in the low 90s expected Monday.

Iowans will need to take precautions to cope with the steamy weather.

Krull says the pattern of above-normal temperatures will continue perhaps for another ten days.

The heat wave isn’t hitting just Iowa. Above-normal temps are forecast through the first week of August from Nebraska all the way to New York.
