A wind advisory covers much of western Iowa through this afternoon, but will expand east across much of northern Iowa tonight through Tuesday. Expect sustained northwest winds of 25 to 35 mph with gusts of 40 to 50 mph possible. The strong winds may affect high profile vehicles, loose objects and spread uncontrolled fires.
Anticipate conditions to vary from day to day as Fall arrives in full force this week. Windy to very windy conditions are expected later today into Tuesday with the first push of colder air. Seasonable highs today will be replaced by much below normal readings on Tuesday. However, the see-saw will be in action with temperatures rebounding quickly into Wednesday. Another strong cold front will move through on Thursday with very strong winds once again along with much colder air. Freezing conditions are expected by Friday night over all of central Iowa which should bring an end to the growing season. Only isolated chances of rain or snow are expected through the work week.
