(KWWL) -

Update Tuesday morning: 

A large storm is still on track to bring showers, thunderstorms and very strong winds to the KWWL viewing area Wednesday through Thursday.

Clouds will increase this afternoon with a few showers tracking into the area late tonight. The main storm will bring showers and thunderstorms to the viewing area late Wednesday morning through Wednesday night. The strongest storms will track through during the afternoon and evening hours in our viewing area and may produce damaging winds, especially along and south of Highway 20. Areas south of Interstate 80 also have the potential for tornadoes as the low tracks over the area late afternoon.

Thunderstorm winds could exceed 60 mph Wednesday, but non-thunderstorm winds will remain strong through Friday. The strongest winds will be Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon with gusts up to 45 mph at times from the northwest. This could lead to falling temperatures throughout Thursday. Gusts of Friday could approach 30 mph with the wind eventually dying down Friday night.


Previous story:

The sky remains clear tonight with temperatures dropping into the upper 20s to around 30 by morning. Tuesday is going to be a nice November day with sunshine and highs in the mid to upper 50s.

We are tracking a large storm forecast to move across the Iowa Wednesday. Rain and storms will spread across the area Wednesday and taper off late Wednesday night. Isolated severe storms are possible Wednesday afternoon.

The winds will be strong Wednesday night through Friday with gusts to 45 mph Wednesday night/Thursday. Gusts on Friday will be near 30 mph. The wind gradually tapers off Friday night.
