Lower Humidities Heading Toward Our Area

It has been tremendously hot the last couple or days. We tied a record yesterday and we are making a run at another today. There is some help coming our way in the form of a cold front. Notice the temperatures as of 3 pm and specifically look toward Des Moines, Iowa.

The heat index values show the really tremendous heat in our area right now!

There is good news and bad news with this front... which would you like first? Ok, the good news first, we will see much lower humidities tomorrow and Thursday. The bad news is the temperatures will not get that much cooler. Let's stay positive and remember the much lower humidities will help a lot to get those heat index values a lot lower.

 

A little later today, we will talk specific numbers.
