DES MOINES, IOWA — Central Iowa just pushed through it's hottest stretch so far of 2022 with highest reaching well into the upper-90s on Saturday, with 100 degrees hit in a couple locations, including Oskaloosa. With a high of 99 in Des Moines, Saturday tied for the second hottest day at the Des Moines airport in five years. Now, with the state receiving a respite from the heat for a few days, an all-time heat anniversary has arrived in Central Iowa. July 25, 1936 marks the hottest recorded day at many locations around Central Iowa, including Des Moines.
