Wind Advisory Issued for Monday

The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for Schuylkill County.


WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 2 AM TO 2 PM EDT MONDAY...

The National Weather Service in State College has issued a Wind Advisory, which is in effect from 2 AM to 2 PM EDT Monday.

* TIMING...Late Sunday night through Monday morning.

* WINDS...Northwest 20to 35 MPH with gusts as high as 45 to 50 MPH at times.

* IMPACTS...Strong winds will bring down tree limbs and will lead to smaller loose objects being blown about. The combination of heavy rain softening the ground and strong wings may also cause trees to topple, which could fall on power lines causing power outages.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Wind advisories are issued when sustained wind speeds of at least 40 mph and/or wind gusts over 45 mph are expected. Winds of this magnitude could cause minor damage to trees, power lines and weaker structures. Persons in the advisory area should secure all loose outdoor objects. If you are traveling through the advisory area keep a firm grip on the wheel, especially for those driving high profile vehicles.
