      • 90°
      • 72°

      Updated Friday, July 21, 2017

      An EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING and A HEAT ADVISORY are in effect through Saturday evening.

      Scattered storms will move through eastern Iowa this afternoon and evening with the potential of damaging winds, locally very heavy rain and isolated tornadoes. Small hail is also possible. The timing is between 4 and 10 PM for any severe storms. Rain and storms are still possible overnight into early Saturday morning with much less of a chance of any becoming severe.

      The clouds will clear Saturday, but the high humidity levels remain. The humidity doesn't drop until Sunday and become more comfortable by the afternoon and into Monday. Dry weather Saturday afternoon continues through Wednesday. The chances of storms return Thursday and Friday as the humidity level increases again.
