NWS SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT FOR BLOWING DUST

Windy conditions this afternoon are producing blowing dust and reduced visibilities. Wind gusts to around 55 mph can be expected. These winds will continue through the afternoon and then diminish to 20 to 30 mph with gusts near 35 mph by 9 PM. Fields are being planted across much of the region and there are a number of active construction sites. These winds will create areas of blowing dust and dirt. This will result in localized areas of extremely low or near zero visibility. Drivers should use caution on Interstate 80…Highways 6 and 92…and all east-west oriented roads.

We strive for accuracy. Report a typo, inaccuracy, or mistake here.
