A very tropical air mass remains in place over eastern Iowa. Abundant moisture in the atmosphere will help aid heavy rainfall in some of the stronger storms throughout the day again today . A cold front will begin to push into the area from the northwest. Dew points will again be in the 70's. High temperatures will range from the low/mid 80's.
Relief is finally in store with the passing of the cold front overnight into early Wednesday. Cool Canadian high pressure will settle in and take a slice out of the dew points as more comfortable conditions are expected for Wednesday into the Labor Day weekend. Temperatures will be below average with mid to upper 70's through the end of the week.
