Severe Weather Saturday Night

It was quite an active night for areas along and south of Highway 20 Saturday night.  We’ve had a few dozen reports of hail across eastern Iowa (from pea size all the way up to golf ball to baseball size), as well as one funnel cloud near Central City and Coggon, as well as flash flooding in the Cedar Rapids area.

Here are a look at the rainfall totals that feel at the local airports across the region.  Dubuque and Monticello saw 1.50″ to 2″+.

Through parts of Tama, Benton, Linn and Jones County, multiple rounds of storms produced heavy rain moving over the same area.  That prompted Flash Flood Warnings for Linn and Jones County.  Doppler Radar estimates shower 1-3″+ in those areas.

As always, we thank KWWL viewers for sending in photos.  Here are just a few pictures of the storms and large hail that folks caught on camera.
