Warm Today - High Wind Watch Tomorrow

Areas in brown are under a High Wind Watch for tomorrow.
Temperatures today will climb into the lower 70s across most the of the region. However, tonight, a cold front will trek through the area and start to lower temperatures. The lows tonight will be in the 40s. Tomorrow, owing to a strong pressure gradient behind the front, strong winds will become a hazard. 

The National Weather Service has posted a High Wind Watch highlighting the potential for gusts up to 60mph in some areas. Winds of this magnitude can rival severe thunderstorm wind gusts. This has the potential to be a hazardous situation with downed trees and power lines. It is important that you stay tuned to your local media, The Capital Region Pulse and other weather providers for the latest information and updates.

Never go near downed power lines and always drive with extra caution during high winds. Strong winds can shift your car unexpectedly on the road. 

Stay tuned, we will continue to provide updates.
