Statement as of 5:53 AM CDT on May 26, 2018

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on May 26, 2018


... Near record warmth and hot conditions today...

Near record warmth is expected to move into Iowa today and
continue through the Holiday weekend. Temperatures are expected to
rise into the mid 90s across the Des Moines Metro area by this
afternoon with heat index values hovering around 95 degrees
through the afternoon hours.

With this period of warm days being the first prolonged period of
heat for the season, individuals may be more prone to heat
illnesses. The hot and humid conditions may especially impact
urban, densely-populated areas, those individuals without access
to air-conditioning and the elderly.

Please take caution with the heat this weekend. Ways to prevent
heat-related illnesses are to stay hydrated, limit time spent in
the sun, and to take breaks in an air-conditioned environment.
