Northern Iowa is facing a severe storm threat amid a heat wave

Des Moines, IA – Northern Iowa is bracing for possible storms today as the risk of severe weather continues throughout the day.

Storms are expected to bring heavy rain and high winds to the region, according to the National Weather Service Des Moines. Central and southern Iowa will experience warm and humid conditions, with temperatures reaching the 90s and heat index values ​​approaching 100 degrees. The active weather pattern will continue throughout the week, with widespread showers and storms likely through Wednesday.

This weather pattern is caused by a frontal boundary moving into the state, leading to a brief cool-down on Wednesday before temperatures rise again later in the week. The forecast calls for intermittent chances for showers and storms throughout the weekend, although the timing and severity of potential storms remain uncertain.
