Season Change

September 21, 2018

We went from near 90 degrees Thursday afternoon to the 50s Friday afternoon. It was just one day early before the official start to Fall Saturday evening at 8:45 pm. With that in mind there are frost advisories in effect tonight for areas to our north.

Here is a look at the average first frost across Iowa.

The clouds were clearing this evening as the sun was setting and it made for a pretty looking sky. Here are a few photos from around the area.
