Tuesday Wind Advisory Follows Monday Night's Slick Conditions
The National Weather Service in Des Moines issued a wind advisory for most of central and southern Iowa until at least 9 p.m. Tuesday.
Emergency Management Coordinator Greg Miller says Crawford County was pretty quiet overnight.
“That’s a good thing and people were very good about it this morning. I had to make a trip down south and back and the roads were fine. It’s just awfully windy out. As it gets colder tonight we have to be careful going home that it may end up having some issues with the weather,” Miller says.
Southeast winds of 20-30 miles per hour are expected with gusts up to 45 miles per hour. It’s recommended that people secure outdoor objects and use extra caution when driving, especially in a high-profile vehicle. Miller says it’s important to be prepared at home and on the go during the cold winter months.
“Have your winter gear with you. Make sure your cell phones are charged. Make sure your vehicles are in good shape. Just bundle up and stay warm. Make sure you have your houses ready for wintertime also because it’s going to be cold for a while,” Miller says.
Light snow is also possible later this week and potentially icy conditions could cause more travel hazards.
