1913: A strong cold front moved across Iowa on June 7th and ushered in several days and nights of unseasonably cool weather. Low temperatures on the morning of the 8th included 37 F at Chariton, Denison, Elkader, Grinnell, and Independence, 36 F at Washta, and 34 F at Alma. Frost was reported at several locations around the state but was light enough and of short enough duration that damage to crops and vegetation was minimal.
