Drivers will deal with strong winds all day

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

A Wind Advisory is in effect through 6:00 pm this evening as winds gust above 40 mph in many spots. Since the wind is from the west, this will mainly impact north-south roads. Highways like US-61 from Dubuque to Davenport and from Muscatine to Burlington, US-150 from Orion to Galesburg, and I-74 from Colona to Galesburg will be most impacted.

Winds will gust near 40 mph for much of our day, finally relaxing a bit after 4pm today. Tonight, while winds won't go calm, they will be much more tolerable...into the 10-20 mph range.

Use caution if you're heading out!
