OTTUMWA, Iowa (KYOU) - Expect another hot and humid day ahead, along with some hazy skies due to upper-level wildfire smoke.

We may see some of the thickest plumes of upper-level smoke today and that may cause air quality issues for those who are sensitive. Highs today will rise well into the 80s and heat index values could be a few degrees higher.

Overnight, partly cloudy with temperatures in the 60s. We will be dealing with at least a thin layer of upper-level smoke through the rest of the week and some could hang out through the weekend. Highs climb into the low 90s and heat index values will climb to 100° of higher.
