As mentioned in yesterday’s update, strong winds will impact the state Thursday with a second round over the weekend so read on for details…

A storm system will work across the northern plains later tonight into Thursday bringing the chance for a few rain showers to our northern counties Thursday morning. Once the front passes, strong northwesterly winds will increase during the day Thursday with gusts 30-55 MPH. Now as we head into Thursday afternoon/evening I wouldn’t rule out a few sprinkles/flurries across north central/northeast Iowa as the second half of energy slides through. At the moment we need to fine tune this risk heading into Thursday.

A surge of warm air will set in over the weekend with a second round of less intense wind. Both Saturday and Sunday the wind will be out of the south/southwest sustained 10-25 with wind gusts 30-40 MPH. High temperatures over the weekend generally in the 60s to lower 70s, middle to upper 50s across extreme northeast Iowa.

Eyeing rain chances early next week as a low pressure system moves through the central US
