I couldn't help myself. The headline wrote itself with Nelly coming to the 2022 Mississippi Valley Fair. If I was writing this article last year when Pitbull was coming, the headline would say "It's Going To Feel Like A Fireball at the Mississippi Valley Fair". Puns and dad jokes aside, it's going to be hot next week during the 6 most fun days of the year.

"So hot in... So hot herre!"

Nelly and Flo Rida will be taking the stage at the 2022 Mississippi Valley Fair on Wednesday, August 3rd at 8 p.m. When Nelly performs Hot In Herre (we assume he will), we will all be singing the truth.

The National Weather Service (NWS) of the Quad Cities is predicting that a huge warmup is coming to the Quad Cities. This heat is going to stretch from the Rocky Mountains to the Eastern Seaboard, and from the U.S.-Canada border down to the Gulf of Mexico.

NWS officials say that the 6-10 day outlook is showing above-normal temperatures throughout the Quad Cities area. Temperatures could reach in the upper 90s to 100 during the middle to late part of next week. We will also see increasing humidity as the week progresses.

Looking at the graphic above from the National Weather Service of the Quad Cities, it looks like we will be in the thick of the heat next week during the 2022 Mississippi Valley Fair. Make sure you're drinking plenty of water, find shade and air conditioning as often as you can, and get out of the heat if you're feeling ill.

Below is the forecast from Monday to Thursday, according to the National Weather Service of the Quad Cities:

  • Monday
    • A 30 percent chance of showers.
    • Sunny, with a high near 90.
  • Monday Night
    • Mostly clear, with a low around 67.
  • Tuesday
    • Sunny, with a high near 91.
  • Tuesday Night
    • Mostly clear, with a low around 74.
  • Wednesday
    • Sunny and hot, with a high near 100.
  • Wednesday Night
    • Partly cloudy, with a low around 77.
  • Thursday
    • Mostly sunny and hot, with a high near 96.
