WATERLOO (KWWL) - Following Monday's record breaking temperatures, eastern Iowa will feel the burn for one more day as temperatures are expected to reach into the middle 90's again Tuesday.

Numerous school districts are releasing students early on Tuesday, and some districts are also adjusting athletic practice schedules.

Jeff Kennedy says relief is on the way, though. Wednesday's highs are expected to be in the mid-80's and Thursday's highs are expected to be in the mid- to upper-70's, a trend that he says will continue into next week.

Health officials remind you to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of non-alcoholic drinks, especially water, even if you don't think you are thirsty. They also ask that you check on elderly friends and neighbors who may have a difficult time with the heat.
