Heatwave: More new Des Moines high temperature records FORECAST

DES MOINES, Iowa - The heatwave continues, with a Heat Advisory will be in effect again Monday for Polk, Dallas and Warren Counties from 1 to 8 PM.

A new high temperature record of 99 was set on Sunday, breaking the old record of 91 from 2012. On Saturday  a new high temperature record was set at 96, beating the old record of 93.  

The heat continues on Memorial Day with more record heat in the mid to upper 90s with sunny skies. 

WHO Channel 13 Meteorologist Megan Salois recommends staying indoors in air conditioning, drinking plenty of water, and limiting time outdoors to help avoid heat illness or exhaustion.

A few more clouds are expected on Tuesday but highs will hold in the low 90s. There could be a few pop up showers that develop late in the day. There is a better chance of scattered showers and storms on Wednesday and highs will be in the upper 80s.

The average high for the end of May is 76°, but as another ridge pushes across the central United States, Iowa will return to the lower 90s for Thursday and Friday. By the weekend another heatwave will move in, bringing a chance for showers and thunderstorms on Saturday.
