This Spring Is Forecast To Be The Most Active Tornado Season Iowa Has Seen In Years

Spring is finally here in Iowa, and that means many people’s thoughts are turning to warm weather, flower festivals, and other things that come with the end of winter. But for many residents of Iowa, especially in the prairie regions, spring also means keeping a close eye on the sky. Iowa is smack-dab in the middle of tornado country, and every year sees powerful cyclonic funnels touch down on the state. No one can ever fully predict what tornado season in Iowa will look like, but there are some indications that the 2023 season could be one of the most active in years. January saw a pair of tornadoes touch down – the earliest any have been seen in the Hawkeye State since 1967! That indicates an unsettled weather pattern – and more could be coming.
