Wind Advisory today. Freeze Watch tonight
Mon, 25 Mar 2013 12:02:33 GMT —
A Wind Advisory has been issued for the Grand Strand and Pee Dee until 11 p.m. tonight.
An area of low pressure to our north will funnel down colder, dry air to the area. Sustained westerly winds between 20 and 30 mph, along with gusts over 40mph, will remain possible through the early evening. The saturated ground from the weekend rain may compromise the rooting system of some trees making it possible for the wind to blow them over or even take down tree limbs. This may cause power outages as well. Items such as trash cans or lawn furniture will be blown around and driving may also be difficult, especially on bridges and overpasses.
Cold air pushing in to the area tonight will drop temperatures into the low to mid 30s. A Freeze Watch has been issued until Tuesday morning.
The area of low pressure to our north will slowly pull away tomorrow, but a weak disturbance will rotate around it bringing a few clouds back for the afternoon. It will still be quite cool and breezy with highs once again reaching the mid 50s.
High pressure will build down from Canada and aross the East keeping unseasonably cool conditions locked in place. Morning temps will remain in the 30s with afternoon temps will reach the mid to upper 50s through the end of the week. Sunny skies will move in and stay through Friday. After this past weekend, dry conditions will remain in the 7day forecast. You can always track our rain on First Alert Live Doppler 15000 or if you have an iPhone or Android make sure you download or app!
