In a round of atypical February weather, the KNIA KRLS Severe Weather Action Team went live at about 11:45 Thursday morning. The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm warning for Marion County as rain and hail passed over the area. Melcher-Dallas, Knoxville and Pella all received rain and pea-sized hail. The warning was allowed to expire at 12:15, and the storm gave way to wind and colder temperatures.
