This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central Iowa.

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and tonight

A Wind Advisory is in effect for the area. Brief, strong wind
gusts to around 50 mph will be possible through mid-evening as
well.

A few thunderstorms with gusty winds and moderate to heavy rains
are possible through this evening.

Minor flooding will also continue along the West Fork Des Moines
River near Estherville for an extended period. Please refer to the

Intermittent thunderstorm chances are expected Thursday night
into the Memorial Day weekend. There is some potential for heavy

better assessed in the coming days, concern is the cumulative

for flash flooding into the weekend.

weekend, especially around Thursday Night.
