Strong winds will be seen through the area beginning tonight and lasting through late Tuesday afternoon. Sustained wind speeds will be in the 20 to 30 mph range, with gusts to 35 to 45 mph. This will lead to difficult travel for lightweight and high profile vehicles. Otherwise, much cooler, more seasonable fall weather is on tap for the work week, with highs mainly in the 40s and 50s. Along with the seasonably cooler air will come periodic chances for showers. Some snow could be mixed in by late this week.
Winds will become strong and gusty starting this evening west of the Mississippi River, before extending to the entire area Tuesday morning and continuing through Tuesday afternoon. Unsecured, lightweight outdoor objects will be blown around (lawn furniture, garbage cans, etc.) and high profiles vehicles could experience difficult travel. Northwest winds will blow from 20 to 30 mph with gusts of 35 to 45.
