Thursday brought some steamy hot weather to Iowa and forecasters say the weekend will feel even hotter.
Meteorologist Cory Martin at the National Weather Service says summer is definitely here.
And after such a cool spring, this hot weather will be especially noticeable.
When the heat index gets into triple-digits, Martin says it’s very important to take the heat seriously and take precautions if you’re working — or playing — outside.
The extended forecast calls for highs in the 80’s and 90’s across much of Iowa through at least next Wednesday.
