Late for First Warning

Posted: 13 Apr 2018 05:34 AM

A powerful spring storm system is expected to bring Iowa's first bout of severe thunderstorms this year on Friday. If it should prompt any Severe Thunderstorm or Tornado Warnings, they would be the first such warnings for the year. The featured chart presents the first date per year for such warnings based on unofficial IEM data. Only two years since 1986 come in later than this year, 1994 and 2003.

Good = 23
Bad = 0
Abstain = 1
