      Today's Forecast Image
      • 77°
      • 68°

      Updated Tuesday, June 19, 2018

      The heat is over…at least for now. Temperatures today return to near normal standards. Actually, we may be a little below normal for mid-June. Highs reach the low 70s to low 80s. The heat exited yesterday but the humidity lingers for another day. A stationary front sits nearby to eastern Iowa. That front may fire off showers and storms today. 

      The front hangs around through the rest of the week, bringing at least some chance for storms through Friday. Heavy rain and flooding are of concern with the multiple chances for showers and storms in eastern Iowa. Temperatures do not return to the 90s in the next seven days. We remain near or below normal for highs into early next week. 

      Thursday marks the Summer Solstice.
