The state’s been buffeted with high winds this morning and afternoon –with gusts nearing 60 miles an hour. National Weather Service Meteorologist Andy Kula says the winds made the sky look a hazy brownish/yellow in some parts of the state as they carried dust up into the sky. He says the dust came from the west Texas and parts of Oklahoma.The warm southerly winds also generated some more record highs today — though Kula says a cool down is ahead. Kula says a wind advisory for central Iowa is expected to expire at four o’clock today, but will stay in effect for the eastern central and southeast portions of the state through tonight.
