Severe Season

Posted: 08 Apr 2015 05:42 AM

After an extremely quiet March, Iowa's severe weather season is getting ramped up this April with a number of NWS Offices servicing Iowa issuing their first severe thunderstorm warning this year. The featured chart displays the period between the first and last severe thunderstorm warning issued by NWS Des Moines each year. Waiting until April is not out of the ordinary for the first warning to be issued. More warnings are expected today and tomorrow as a large storm system crosses the central US.

Good = 20
Bad = 14
Abstain = 6
