Upper Midwest to See Record-high Temperatures

10 months ago

Forecasters predict record-high temperatures in the north-central United States through the weekend and into the first week of October. This is excellent news for people who want some more time to enjoy their favorite activities and farmers who need their corn to dry out to the right level of humidity so that they can harvest it, but it can be bad news as it may worsen the drought.

How Hot Will It Get?

Forecasters believe the heatwave will spread throughout Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, Missouri, South Dakota and North Dakota.


Temperatures in Des Moines, Iowa, reached 92 on Saturday, 91 on Sunday and 88 on Monday before dipping a little on Wednesday. The record high for Saturday in Des Moines was 92 degrees in 1952.
