...Gusty winds and scattered thunderstorms tonight...

A cold front is surging into western and northwestern Iowa early
tonight. As the front moves through it will produce scattered
thunderstorms, some of which could be strong and produce hail and
high winds. Even aside from the storms, winds will quickly turn to
northwesterly and increase substantially behind the front,
reaching speeds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts over 40 mph for a time
before gradually subsiding overnight.
