The National Weather Service in Des Moines has issued a Wind

through the afternoon.
* WINDS...Northwest winds should reach sustained speeds of 25 to
35 mph with gusts of 40 to 50 mph likely.

Christmas decorations and make travel for high profile vehicles

gusts of 45 mph or greater are expected. Winds this strong can
