Discussion

Strong, damaging winds continue to be a concern for the region and are in the forecast for tomorrow as a strong northwest flow aloft is going to develop over the state. The jet streak that will move overhead of our region has wind speeds of over 150 knots and this could set the stage for damaging wind gusts on Wednesday of 60 mph or greater. Temperatures will also drop some 15 degrees for highs between today and Wednesday following readings later today in the upper 70’s.
