The forecast calls for the hottest weather of the year so far to arrive in Iowa tomorrow (Thursday), which happens to coincide with Heat Awareness Day. Meteorologist Kenny Podrazik, at the National Weather Service, says it’s not officially summertime yet, but it’ll sure feel like it. “We’ll be up into the low 90s Thursday, and then Friday and into the weekend, we’ll be well into the mid 90s on Friday, Saturday and even into Sunday,” Podrazik says. “Sunday it may be a little cooler, but it’ll be nice and hot.”heat_wave

Podrazik says Heat Awareness Day is a time to remind Iowans about the steamy season ahead and how to conduct best themselves. “Never leave kids or pets unattended when the car is off,” he says. “Limit strenuous outdoor activities. Find shade. Always stay hydrated. If you work outside, the biggest thing is to take breaks in the shade.”

The first day of summer is June 20th. Find more information about Heat Awareness Day at www.weather.gov/dmx
