... Wind Advisory in effect from 3 PM this afternoon to midnight
The National Weather Service in Raleigh has issued a Wind
Advisory for all of central NC... which is in effect from 3 PM
this afternoon to midnight EDT tonight.
* Timing... this afternoon and into the evening.
* Winds... southwest winds ahead of the cold front will increase
into the 20 to 25 mph range by the afternoon... with frequent
gusts between 35 and 45 mph. Equally strong northwest winds will
occur behind the front during the evening as much colder air
surges in from the northwest.
* Impacts... gusty winds may blow around loose objects and knock
down tree branches and limbs. Additionally... with soggy ground
conditions from recent heavy rains... winds of these magnitude
may also knock down a few trees.
A Wind Advisory means that winds of 35 mph are expected. Winds
this strong can make driving difficult... especially for high
profile vehicles. Use extra caution.
