For the most part, the weekend was pretty calm weather wise, with cooler temperatures and tolerable humidity levels.

Sunday brought us a mix of sun and clouds, with temperatures in the lower to upper 70s.  Most of the rain has stayed north and south of Iowa.  However, an area of rain and storms developed along a weak boundary in northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin, which lead to a few funnel clouds developing.  

Fortunately, these types of funnel clouds don't last very long, and do not lead to the formation of tornadoes since the environment is not favorable.
