CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) - July is the warmest month of the year in Iowa.

In an average July, 18 days will be spent in the 80s. An additional six days are spent at or above 90 degrees, leaving about 20% of the month below 80. Most times, that’s when the rain will hit or clouds will linger, keeping us in the 70s.

It isn’t overly common to exceed 100 degrees in July due to the extreme humidity we have. Statistically, it’s about the same chance as staying in the 60s for highs.
