Record Highs and Severe Weather Sunday

What an end to our weekend and start of severe weather awareness week in Iowa. You can see the hail that was found in New Sharon, IA yesterday and the severe weather reports map with the swath of hail and wind damage through the center of the country yesterday.

You can see a complete list of the severe weather accounts at:,FSD,MPX,ARX,OAX,EAX,DVN/201104032100/201104040700/0100
Those storm blew up during the afternoon hours over the area we told you to watch last Friday. The southeastern corner of the state had the best potential for storms after we hit record highs and a cold front moved into the state with very different temperatures today.

Des Moines had a high of 87! That beat the old record by 5 degrees. Ottumwa hit 86 and Lamoni cranked out 87....both new record highs for the day.

It is cold today...windy too. A wind advisory is in effect until 6 PM. Much warmer temperatures come back to Iowa tomorrow.
