...WIND ADVISORY NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM CST THIS EVENING...
* TIMING...Winds will strengthen by mid to late morning as a cold
front passes through central Iowa. The strong winds will then
persist through sunset.
* WINDS...Northwest winds should reach sustained speeds of 25 to
35 mph with gusts of 40 to 50 mph likely.
* IMPACTS...Winds of this magnitude may blow loose objects such as
Christmas decorations and make travel for high profile vehicles
difficult. Fire weather conditions will also be elevated in
areas that do not receive sufficient precipitation. Any fires
may spread quickly.
A Wind Advisory means that sustained winds of 30 mph or wind
gusts of 45 mph or greater are expected. Winds this strong can
make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Use
