A deep area of low pressure is generating gale force winds over parts the Midwest. At 6:30 pm gusts of 60-65 mph were reported from NW Iowa into western Minnesota.
The deep surface low responsible for the tight pressure gradient and winds will only slowly drift northeast the next 24 hours. That means the winds will remain gusty into tomorrow. Much of the Midwest and my area will see gusts in the range of 35 to 45 mph, maybe 50 in my western counties in Iowa.
The NWS in Des Moines shows the potential of some gusts in NW Iowa approaching 70 mph.
These are the advisories in effect into Tuesday.
As you can see temperatures out in central Iowa are 14-16 degrees colder than just 24 hours ago.
Tomorrow with those whistling winds and and readings in the 40s most of the day wind chills will be in the low to mid 30s all day long. Here are the mid-day projections.
Throw in some light showers, especially in the morning across the north and you have yourself a pretty lame day. Don't say I didn't warn you! Roll weather and feel free to make a comment on this turn of events below. TS
