Highland Weather & Climate

Northeastern Iowa, along the Mississippi River, has a continental climate with four distinct seasons. However, weather here is often not as extreme as that found in other parts of the Midwest, such as Minnesota or Wisconsin. Spring is usually wet and rainy, summers are sunny and warm, autumn is pleasant and mild, and winters are typically cold and snowy. Average snowfall in this area is 30.7 inches annually. Substantial weather changes frequently occur at three to four day intervals as a result of mid-latitude storm tracks. While situated squarely in the path of Tornado Alley, no devastating tornado has ever touched down in this region of Iowa. However, flooding is often a severe problem along the Mississippi River in eastern Iowa.
