With winds expected to gust up to 50 MPH combined with low humidity, spring burning is NOT recommended across Eastern Iowa on Monday, March, 29th.
From the National Weather Service in Des Moines:
Monday will be warm, dry, and windy which will create elevated to extreme fire weather conditions on Monday afternoon into early evening...
Well, it turns out that it's actually Severe Weather Awareness Week and if you're looking to chase some awesome storms, do I have an idea for you. While this is not an official "storm chasing" certification this could be the next best thing, especially in Northeastern Iowa. It's pretty simple to be a storm spotter in Iowa.
