Gusty Winds Continue Into Tuesday

Iowa Wind Adviosry

Iowa will remain in a favorable position for strong and gusty northwest winds overnight and into early to mid afternoon tomorrow. Overall wind speeds and gusts for tomorrow will be around 5 or so mph higher than they were today, with the strongest winds likely coming during the early afternoon hours.

Northwest winds will maintain themselves at varied moderate to high levels into Tuesday before finally diminishing by sunset tomorrow. The strongest winds will likely occur during the late morning to early afternoon hours. Northwest winds will reach sustained speeds of 25 to 35 mph with peak gusts of 40 to 50 mph.

Strong northwest winds may affect high profile vehicles, blow trash cans and other loose objects and break small branches. These strong winds may also cause difficulty controlling fires with fields being harvested especially susceptible.

A Wind Advisory means that sustained winds of 30 mph or more or wind gusts over 45 mph are expected. Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Use extra caution.
