Iowa Wind Advisory

Gusty northwesterly winds are expected Wednesday, as an upper level wave drops through the state. Some showers are also possible and some of the strongest winds gusts may end up occurring near areas with showers/light rain.

A wind advisory is in effect from 10am to 7pm Wednesday. The strongest winds will occur late Wednesday morning through early Wednesday evening.Winds will be sustained out of the northwest at 25 to 35-mph with gusts to 45-mph.

High profile vehicles may experience travel difficulties, and unsecured objects may blow around. Strong winds and dry conditions will result in an elevated fire danger. Any fires which start could spread rapidly.

A wind advisory means that winds of 35-mph are expected. Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Use extra caution.
