A complex of storms coming out of the Dakotas will intensify and become a squall line with wind gusts to 70 mph. In the end if the system really gets going, it can be classified as a Derecho. Model soundings suggest winds will be gusting over 70 mph with the passage of the squall line. I expect the line of storms to go from Iowa to Kentucky before weakening. Winds of this nature can cause significant damage to trees and property.

  1. Great! Right through one of the major breadbaskets of the US. That’ll kick up commodity grain prices and everything associated with it that happens as forecasted.
