NEXT:


A high wind watch has been issued Wednesday night from 9:00 pm until Thursday morning at 6:00 am.  The winds are expected to peak between Midnight and 3 am.

The jetstream aloft will scream over 100 mph.  In response to the jet, a deepening surface low will increase our winds between 15 to 35 mph; however, wind gusts over 50 mph will be most problematic.

Some isolated gusts near 60 can't be ruled out.  To put that in perspective, a severe thunderstorm wind is 58 mph or greater.

Tree limbs could cause sporadic power outages Wednesday night.  If you have trash cans or other lawn furniture outside, please take the time to secure them.
