Fast Start to 2017

Posted: 09 Mar 2017 05:53 AM

After a relatively quite past few years for severe weather in Iowa, 2017 has gotten off to a fast start. The featured chart displays the accumulated year to date number of severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings for Iowa. This year's total is over three times the next highest year of 2006. It will be interesting to see if this trend continues into the spring season. Our next storm system looks to bring snow, so these totals would not appear to be added to anytime soon.

Good = 6
Bad = 0
Abstain = 1
