Be prepared for strong winds on Sunday

Weather

October 26th, 2018 by Ric Hanson

The National Weather Service in Des Moines says strong winds are looking increasingly likely for this upcoming Sunday. Beginning around sunrise on Sunday morning, northwesterly winds are expected to quickly rise to the 20 to 30 mph range, with gusts over 40 mph likely. These winds are expected to last through Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening. The strongest winds will likely occur during the late morning to early afternoon hours.
Potentially hazardous impacts from these winds include travel impacts, especially roads such as Interstate 35 north of the Des Moines metro and Interstate 80 east of the Des Moines metro. Additionally, unsecured yard objects/decorations may be blown around. Tree branch damage also cannot be ruled out at this time.
