Those gusty winds are still whipping the Midwest and will do so the rest of the day before slowly diminishing tonight. Wind advisories are out for many areas.
Gusts as of the noon hour are still in the range of 35-40 mph
This should be as high as we go the rest of the day on max gusts.
Here are the peak gusts since midnight from around the region thanks to the Iowa mesonet. More than 50 mph in several spots around Iowa.
Skies are gradually clearing to the west and south as the storm pulls into Canada.
Clearing tonight will lead to lows near the freezing mark
Wind chills will dip into the 20s.
Wednesday a weak disturbance will bring some clouds and perhaps a few showers, mainly north. Rain totals will be very light where showers develop. Here's the cloud forecast at mid-day.
Simulated radar at 1:00pm.
Highs will be coolest in the north Wednesday where the clouds will keep readings well into the 40s. That's your Swails mid-day briefing. Roll weather...TS
