Clouds and storms will temper the heat along and north of the I-80 corridor today. However for areas south of the Quad Cities, a Heat Advisory is in effect. Louisa, Mercer, Knox, Warren, Henderson, Des Moines, Henry (IA), Lee (IA), Hancock, and McDonough are in the advisory for the afternoon hours.
There will be a few storms moving in from the west during the late-morning hours. A few of these storms will produce downpours, affecting areas along and north of the I-80 corridor. Temperatures will rise into the upper 80s and lower 90s before these move in.
After these storms dissipate early this afternoon, we’ll get another chance to warm up…possibly back to the lower 90s. Additional storm activity will move in after sunset tonight, lasting through about 4am Wednesday morning.
It looks dry from Wednesday through Friday afternoon. Then it’s back to a stormy pattern potentially. High temperatures will be a few degrees above the normal high of 85.
