      • 63°

      Updated Thursday, May 24, 2018

      The unofficial start to Summer isn't even here yet but summerlike weather is. Heat and humidity will stick around into next week with highs in the mid to upper 80s... and even approaching 90 on Sunday... with head indices in the mid 90s (at least). With overnight lows staying in the mid 60s, there won't be much relief at night, either, so make sure you take proper precautions to keep your body from overheating. Take frequent breaks when working or playing outdoors. Drink plenty of non-alcoholic/non-caffeinated drinks (both of those will dehydrate you faster). Wear lightweight clothing. Keep an eye on seniors and young... they will be more susceptible.

      There are spotty chances for a shower or thunderstorm tonight, and then another slight chance of rain and storms Friday night, especially across northeast Iowa. 

      The holiday weekend will be warm and humid, but we will stay dry.
