High winds will return to the Grand Strand and Pee Dee Monday
Sun, 24 Mar 2013 23:25:34 GMT —
A wind advisory has been issued for the Grand Strand and Pee Dee from 8 a.m. until 11 p.m. Monday.
Low pressure moving off to the northeast combined with an area of low pressure moving into the Ohio valley will funnel cool, dry air into the area. Sustained westerly wind of 20 to 35 miles per hour will persist throughout the day with gusts over 40 miles per hour possible.
While the fire danger will not be as high as the last wind event, certain impacts are still possible with these strong winds. Soggy ground from the weekend will make uprooting trees a little easier
oose items such as trash cans can become airborne. Driving may also be difficult, especially on bridges and overpasses.
Even with more sunshine around Monday, temperatures will remain well below the average of 68 degrees, climbing only into the mid 50
