Last Wednesday, the 23rd, the Davenport NWS Office issued a Tornado Warning that included portions of Scott and Clinton Counties in Iowa. This is the only December Tornado Warning for Iowa found in the IEM archives that date back since 1986. It is believed that prior to 1986, a few tornado warnings were issued in December for Iowa. Regardless, the featured chart displays the period between the first and last Tornado Warning issued by the Davenport Office. The average last date for a Tornado Warning is the middle of August!
