Per KCCI they said the temp peaked out around 5 pm at 106 or 4 degrees short of the record! This is the hottest it has been in Des Moines since August 16, 1983, which was another brutal hot dry summer that seems to be forgotten around the talk of the 1930s, 1950s, and 1988.

I am seeing some red and yellow on radar, hope it can make it in, but not holding out hope.
