Record May heat in Des Moines area, now early June storms

DES MOINES, Iowa - We had a record-setting May in Des Moines, the hottest May ever.  The previous record was set in 1934.   Many other Iowa cities had one of the top five hottest Mays.

Meterologist Craig Cougil with the National Weather Service says we will likely continue to see hotter than usual temperatures for at least the first two to three weeks of June.

The first day of June, today, will lead us into some storms tonight and overnight.  WHO TV Channel 13 forecast VIDEO BELOW.
