On This Date in Iowa Weather History: 1899: Unseasonably cold weather settled across Iowa on the last five days of September. On the 26th-28th many locations around the state reported frost with a few stations recording freezes on each day. On the 29th and 30th temperatures fell even further, all the way down to 15 F at Mason City on the 30th which tied the all-time Iowa September record established just the previous day at Sheldon and Sibley. Other low temperatures on the 30th included 16 F at Delaware and Monticello, 17 F at Elkader, Toledo, and West Branch, 18 F at Amana, Independence, and Wilton, and 19 F at Clinton, Guthrie Center, Iowa Falls, and Washington. At Des Moines the low of 26 F remains tied for their coldest September temperature on record.
1895: The latter half of September was marked by extreme temperature change. On the 17th and 18th many stations recorded highs in the upper 90s to lower 100s, including three that reached 103 F on September 17. The month then ended with a cold wave that resulted in scattered frost reports on September 25-29 and a widespread killing frost on the 30th when temperatures dropped below freezing across most of Iowa. The lowest reported temperatures that morning included 24 F at Glenwood, Guthrie Center, and Logan, 23 F at Rockwell City, and 22 F at Atlantic.
