Year of Last Tornado Warning

Posted: 12 May 2014 05:44 AM

Thankfully, the high end tornado threat did not materialize in Iowa on Mother's Day, but there were still a number of storms producing brief tornadoes. The featured map presents the year of the last tornado warning issued by the NWS for a given county. Please note that current warnings are "storm based" and issued for a polygon area, but they are still associated with counties. The map shows Allamakee County with the longest warning drought in the state. Severe weather is possible again today with the highest threat over eastern Iowa.

Good = 22
Bad = 3
Abstain = 4
