Des Moines, Iowa – RadioIowa – Iowans should not encounter any weather-related obstacles on their way to the polls this Election Day. National Weather Service Meteorologist Brad Small says plenty of sunshine is expected, along with typical temperatures for early November.
Throughout history, there have been some unusual weather events in Iowa during a federal election. For instance, in 1938, eight inches of snow fell in parts of eastern Iowa on Election Day. Small notes, while significant snowfall in early November is rare, all kinds of severe weather can strike this time of year.
Ten tornadoes touched-down across Iowa on Veterans Day last November.
