What a difference a week makes

The Daily Freeman Journal
Just a little over a week ago, students stayed home from school in Hamilton County because of subzero temperatures and dangerous wind chills. But Monday brought warmer conditions with highs climbing into the upper 30s and lower 40s by mid-afternoon. However, the warmer weather and sunshine will likely be short lived as snow and colder temperatures were forecast for Tuesday with a chance of light snow before noon and scattered flurries in the afternoon.The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for Hamilton County today. Winds are expected to be between 30 and 40 miles per hour with gusts of 50 miles per hour. The advisory notes that some patchy, blowing snow will be possible.The advisory will remain in effect from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. today. Advisories have been issued across west and central Iowa as well as Nebraska and Minnesota. Wind advisories are issued when winds of at least 35 miles per hour are expected. The advisory said the strong winds can make driving difficult and urges high profile vehicles to be especially cautious.
