Episode Narrative A cold front stretching across the upper Midwest, coupled with warm moist air streaming northward across the area, brought scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms to portions of east central Iowa and northern Illinois during the midday hours August 9. Some locations along the Highway 20 corridor saw rainfall amounts ranging from 1 to 2 inches from these storms. Afternoon high temperatures were in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

By late afternoon, showers and thunderstorms began to redevelop along the cold front in western Iowa and spread eastward into the Mid-Mississippi Valley.

During the evening hours, these storms brought widespread rain to the Mid-Mississippi Valley. In addition, several of these storms became severe over eastern Iowa producing winds gusts from 50 to 80 mph around the Cedar Rapids Area.
Event Narrative Heavy rains resulted in flash flooding of some roads in the vicinity of Guilford, IL during the late evening of August 9.
