Posted: 01 Oct 2019 04:55 AM

Nothing like feeling like the middle of summer during the last day of September. Temperatures warmed well into the 80s and dewpoints were not far behind in the lower 70s. The heat index unofficially reached a muggy 92 degrees for Des Moines based on available hourly reports. The featured chart depicts the warmest heat index values on record for the site for the period between 30 September and 31 December based on IEM archives of hourly reports. All of this heat and humidity will help to drive two days of impressive rainfall totals over Iowa to start off October.

Good = 16
