Low pressure lifted northeast across northwest Iowa and
southern Minnesota Saturday afternoon, swinging a cold front
into eastern Iowa. Scattered showers and thunderstorms, some
severe, developed out ahead of the front. The primary threat
was damaging winds. The hardest hit areas were Center
Junction, Cascade, Peosta, and Sageville; where there was
tree, power line, and structural damage reported. Brief heavy
rains also accompanied the storms, with some areas picking up
a third to two thirds of an inch in a matter of minutes.
Otherwise, skies were partly to mostly sunny and afternoon
highs topped out in the upper 70s to mid 80s.
Dry conditions are expected across most of the area
overnight, as the low pressure system races off to the
northeast and the cold front pushes east of the Mississippi
River. Temperatures will come to rest in the upper 50s to mid
60s by daybreak Sunday.
Partly to mostly sunny skies will be common across the area
Sunday afternoon, as temperatures once again rise into the
upper 70s to mid 80s.
