Wind Advisory
Wind Advisory(WRDW)

Wind threat:

Gusts between 20 - 30 mph will definitely be possibly as the boundary moves through the region. Sustained winds will also stay between 15-25 mph. A Wind Advisory is in effect for the entire viewing area until 2PM today. With breezy conditions, loose soil from previous rains, and all of the rain we have received, it is possible we could see downed trees which could cause scattered power outages.

Temperatures will be in the mid 40s and will only reach the low to mid 50s by the afternoon. After midday the winds will begin to calm down and the sunshine should come out.

More colder temps are on the way with low reaching the upper 20s to low 30s by Tuesday morning. Highs in the afternoon will reach the mid 50s again but slow warming will occur through Thursday when the next cold front arrives. Currently, we do not expect this front to be a big rain maker, but it will deliver a reinforcing shot of colder than average temperatures to the area Friday into next weekend. Keep it here for the latest and stay weather aware.
