Season Change

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.

Funnel Clouds Sunday

Cold air funnel cloud reports started coming in just before 3 PM from Dike to Waterloo. More funnel reports came in for Tiffin and Coralville between 4:30 PM and 5 PM. Cold air funnels are typically brief, drop a few hundred feet from the cloud base and don’t touch the ground to become tornadoes. Below are some of the pictures shared with KWWL.

Approaching Storm Wednesday evening

A broken line of storms was moving southeast across parts of eastern Iowa. The leading edge produced a nice view. No severe weather occurred with the storms.

A severe thunderstorm moved across Tama County with heavy rain, lightning, gusty winds and large hail. All the reports and photos we have gotten this evening were from Traer.

Here is the warning issued at 4:34 PM…

Here is a look at the radar…

Golf ball size or maybe a little large were some of the reports. There might be some damage to vehicles and the roof of you home or business. You might want to have them checked out to make sure there was no damage.

Saturday Weather Photos

Countless viewers had their cameras ready and snapped photos of weather wide variety of weather we had across eastern Iowa Saturday.

The day started off with rain and a few thunderstorms.  Behind the shield of rain, a “wake low” formed, which produced 50 to 80+ mph winds, in the wake of the rain.  Hampton, Iowa had an 87 mph wind gust.  The gusty wind did cause some tree damage in Aplington and Parkersburg.

Another round of rain and storms moved through portions of northern Iowa late in the afternoon and early evening.  Many viewers caught rainbows shortly after the rain and storms.

Heather Hageman – Farmersburg

 

Nichole LaMarsh – Nashua

 

Rod McLane – Guttenberg

 

Brenda Elsamiller – Owelwein

 

The line of storms went on to produce some picturesque scenes of shelf clouds rolling in.  This is a sign of gusty winds out ahead of the line of storms.  Some of the low-hanging clouds you see are harmless, known as “scud.”
