I thought I would try something new. Each day I will try and find an interesting stat and post it here in the blog. Each day the number will represent a weather tidbit. Hope you enjoy.
This number represents the number of severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings (combined) issued in Iowa from January 1 to March 24 this year.
No tornado warnings have been issued in Iowa so far this year. This map shows where the 14 severe thunderstorm warnings were issued.
The chart below shows the combined number of warnings for each year going back to 1990 during the same January 1 to March 24 time frame. There have only been 6 years with more than 17 warnings. In 2017 there were 111.
