Heat and humidity take over before strong storms arrive late Wednesday

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Morning showers have ended and skies have mostly cleared out.

That sunshine has us warming up quickly and it will be a hot and humid afternoon with highs near 90.

There will be a bit of a breeze but the heat index will still reach the upper 90s at times.

The night will be warm and muggy but quiet with lows in the low 70s.

Wednesday will dial the heat and humidity up even further with it feeling like the triple digits in the afternoon hours.

This is the kind of heat that can become dangerous; you will want to schedule any outdoor activities early in the day to avoid it.

Most of Wednesday will be quiet but late in the day a front will approach with thunderstorms firing up in western Siouxland as a result.

Strong winds and hail do look possible with those storms before they weaken later in the evening and overnight hours.

There are more storms in the forecast and we'll let you know when to expect those on News 4 Live at 5.
