Cooler Temperatures Behind The Front

Yesterday's storms left a large amount of wind damage throughout the Stateline area. The National Weather Service did confirm a brief EF-0 tornado near Mechanicsville, Iowa. Locally, storm reports of wind damage were widespread throughout WCarroll, Whiteside, Ogle, Lee and DeKalb counties as a result of wind gusts upwards of 60-70mph.

The cold front can be seen just off to our east because temperatures in front of it are still in the 70s. Behind the front high pressure is dominating, but much cooler air has funneled in.

Speaking of cooler air, take a look at this. Ahead of yesterday's storms we warmed up into the lower 80s. Behind the front today's high will top out in the lower 60s. To put it into perspective, our average should be in the lower 70s.
