Batten down the hatches, we’re in for a blustery day. The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for the WKVI listening area until 7 p.m. EST/6 p.m. CST this evening. Southwest winds will increase to 25 to 35 miles-per-hour by mid to late morning, with gusts reaching 45 mph during the day.
As a result, small tree branches will be blown down, and power outages are possible. Lightweight objects like garbage cans may also be tossed around by the wind. Driving will also be difficult, especially in tall vehicles like vans or SUV’s. Keep that in mind if you’re out today.
