Heat Wave Moves Through Eastern Iowa Wednesday
By Kaj O'Mara, Meteorologist
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - The heat is moving in right on schedule Wednesday. Expect highs of 95-100 degrees area-wide with heat index values right around 100-103.
The mugginess will creep up a bit more for Thursday and with temperatures equally as hot, heat index values will be higher on Thursday, likely in the 103-108 range.
A few small waves of low pressure will try to break the heat wave and could trigger a few scattered storms, mainly at night, from Thursday night through Saturday night. Highs will likely be no lower than 90 degrees, with lows at 70 or above each night.
