102-degree heat is latest in six decades
DES MOINES (AP) — A state official says the 102-degree heat recorded this week in southern Iowa made it the hottest day this late in the year in six decades.
State Climatologist Harry Hillaker says the 102-degree heat was recorded Monday at Donnellson and Keokuk.
He says the last time a reading that high occurred this late in the year was Sept. 28, 1953, when 100-degree readings occurred across nearly half of the state.
