1988: A rare November tornado outbreak struck Iowa with eight tornadoes touching down across the state. Several of these affected Monroe, Wayne, Appanoose, and Wapello counties including one tornado that injured four people north of Rathbun Lake. Meanwhile in western and northwestern Iowa several inches of snow fell as cold air rushed in on the back side of the storm system. The highest reported snowfall amounts included 3.3 inches at Oakland, 4.0 inches at Cherokee, Logan, and Sheldon, 5.0 inches at Storm Lake, and 5.3 inches at Denison.
1960: A rare mid-November tornado produced F2 damage as it moved northeast through Manchester to near Greeley, damaging about 50 homes. Another, smaller tornado passed just north of Bellvue.
