The Storm Prediction Center took in 177 severe weather reports from Sunday, most of which were hail and damaging wind reports. Storms that pushed just south of Sioux City brought 70-80 mph winds, damaging trees and knocking out power. We posted an incredible video on our Facebook page that shows just the kind of power and energy these storms release, you should definitely take a look.
August was one of the coolest in recent years, but temps were right around average. Precipitation is a different story, with many across the south breaking the monthly record. Sioux City (who seems to be getting the brunt of the weather) broke their old June-August rainfall record with just over 30 INCHES of precipitation!
Grilling or picnics are a green light this afternoon, where partly cloudy skies are expected and temps in the mid-70s. A few isolated showers could sneak their way in around the MRV later in the evening.
