Very Strong Winds Wednesday

Iowa High Wind Watch

A power storm system will bring high winds Wednesday. A high wind watch has been issued for Wednesday night due to strong winds developing in the wake of a powerful storm system. Sustained winds of 40 to 50mph with gusts of 60mph will be possible in the watch area Wednesday night.

This powerful storm storm system will develop in the plains late tonight and deepen rapidly across Iowa and into Wisconsin through Wednesday night.

The potential impacts include, loose objects that can be easily blown about by the strong winds and some light structural damage. Plus, some commercial power interruption will also be possible due to downed power lines.

A high wind watch means there is the potential for a hazardous high wind event. Sustained winds of at least 40mph, or gusts of 58mph or stronger may occur. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
