Hot, humid, hazy conditions continue through the next 7-10 days in eastern Iowa.
Friday, hot and humid with hazy but sunny skies. Temperatures push into the 90s with that heat index near 95.
The warmth continues into the weekend with temperatures likely pushing into the low 90s both Saturday and Sunday. Heat indices will likely near or exceed 100, especially on Saturday. Any strenuous outdoor activity should be confined to the early morning or evening hours. Make sure to drink plenty of water and take breaks if you plan on being outside.
There will be a weak cold front that moves through Saturday afternoon that may lead to an isolated shower or storm. This will also lead to slightly lower humidity levels on Sunday, which should keep heat index values below 100.
Hot weather continues likely through at least Thursday of next week. The pattern may get a bit more active late next week as storms may return, but this likely won't happen until after at least Wednesday.
