...Gusty Winds and Elevated Fire Danger Today...

Winds will increase rapidly by mid morning across central and
southeast Iowa with gusts of 40 mph or more expected before
diminishing later this afternoon. Farther north and east wind
gusts of 20 to 30 mph will be common.

These gusty winds will combine with warm temperatures, fairly low
humidities, and drying grasses and crops to produce an elevated
fire danger through this afternoon. Any fires that ignite could
spread quickly under these conditions, especially across cropland.
Burning is not recommended under these conditions. Burn bans are
in effect for multiple central Iowa counties.
