Northwest Iowa — The recent warm days remind us that the hot, humid days of summer are right around the corner, and we need to prepare ourselves for them.

Meteorologist Alex Krull, at the National Weather Service, says that while the calendar says summer officially arrives June 21st, summer weather could be here much sooner.

It’s important to stay well hydrated, wear sunscreen and a hat, as well as light-colored and light-weight clothing. Krull is also issuing a reminder about the extreme dangers of leaving a child or pet in a hot vehicle.

While it’s been a cool, wet spring, warmer weather is already beginning to set in and steamy summers are common in this area.
