...A BRIEF PERIOD OF STRONG WINDS EARLY THIS MORNING...

A COLD FRONT IS PUSHING SOUTHEAST ACROSS IOWA EARLY THIS MORNING.
RIGHT BEHIND THE FRONT...A STRONG PUSH OF COOLER AIR IS CAUSING
WINDS TO INCREASE TO 20 TO 30 MPH AT TIMES WITH GUSTS BRIEFLY TO
40 MPH. THIS MAY CAUSE SOME MINOR BLOWING SNOW NORTH OF HIGHWAY 20
EARLY TODAY. THE STRONGER WINDS WILL LAST FOR A FEW HOURS BEFORE
REMAINING NEAR 15 TO 20 MPH FOR MOST OF THE AFTERNOON HOURS WITH
GUSTS TO NEAR 35 MPH AT TIMES.

HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES MAY EXPERIENCE SOME BRIEF DIFFICULTY DRIVING
EARLY TODAY ACROSS AREA HIGHWAYS. PATCHY BLOWING SNOW NORTHWEST
MAY BRIEFLY COAT ROADS WITH SNOW...AND CAUSE A FEW SLIPPERY
STRETCHES. DRIVE CAREFULLY AND ALLOW EXTRA TIME TO REACH YOUR
DESTINATION SAFELY.
