Hot and humid across eastern Iowa today

Posted: Updated:

Heat, humidity and a chance of storms will continue today. We ended up being just too stable for the storms to track through most of our viewing area. Boundaries put out by the early morning storms could be the focal point for afternoon activity in the viewing area. Any storms that manage to break through the stable layer will have the potential for damaging winds. Some hail and isolated tornadoes are also possible. Heavy rainfall will be likely with the tropical air mass continuing to sit over us. Heat indices will be between 100 and 110 this afternoon over the entire area with the southern half under a Heat Advisory for the higher end of that range through the evening. We may have a few showers and storms off and on throughout the week with summer-like weather continuing.
