Posted: 01 Aug 2011 05:45 AM

Thankfully, July of 2011 is history, but the heat and muggy weather looks to continue. The featured chart presents the number of hours during July for the past 40 years that the heat index was above 100 degrees for Des Moines. This year's total comes in slightly higher than 1999. The average during this period is just over 28 hours as shown by the blue line.

Good = 19
Bad = 2
