Posted: 14 Jun 2024 05:30 AM

While air temperatures were quite warm on Thursday over Iowa, the worst of the humidity was confined to far southern Iowa. The combination of the two pushed feels like temperatures well into the 90s, with most locations experiencing the hottest conditions so far this year. Such was the case for Lamoni with the featured chart presenting the daily range between the warmest and coolest feels like temperature. Values on Thursday were about 10 degrees warmer than any previous date this year. Storms did fire in the afternoon over southeastern Iowa, being fueled by this steamy air mass. The heat and humidity looks to stick around over the next number of days as full scale summer has arrived for Iowa.
