Winds northwest 20 to 35 miles per hours will have gusts up to 45 miles per hour through this evening. Tree limbs could be blown down and a few power outages may result. Winds could also make driving difficult.
Sunday night through next Saturday, a strong storm system with an ample supply of moisture is expected to move through the Plains Monday night through Thursday. This storm may produce heavy rain over the region with 1 to 3 inches of rain possible Tuesday and Wednesday. Rain, along with additional melting snow cover, frozen ground and thick ice cover on area rivers is expected to increase the risk of flooding and ice jams. The rain may transition to snow on Thursday with some accumulation possible.
