Wind is a-howlin'

Forecast for Tyler's part of North Carolina...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS ISSUED A WIND ADVISORY WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 10 PM THIS EVENING TO 9 AM EST WEDNESDAY.

WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE FROM THE SOUTH THIS EVENING. BY LATE EVENING... SUSTAINED WINDS OF 25 TO 30 MPH ARE LIKELY... WITH GUSTS UP TO 45 TO 50 MPH. THESE STRONG AND POSSIBLY DAMAGING WINDS WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE NIGHTTIME HOURS AND INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING.

WINDS THIS STRONG ARE CAPABLE OF DOWNING LARGE TREE LIMBS. WEAK TREES OR THOSE IN SOGGY SOIL ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO FALLING AS WELL. FALLING LIMBS COULD ALSO DRAG DOWN POWER LINES... SO POWER OUTAGES ARE POSSIBLE TONIGHT. THE WINDS WILL ALSO MAKE DRIVING VERY DIFFICULT.

PEOPLE ACROSS THE AREA SHOULD BRING ANY LOOSE OBJECTS... INCLUDING TRASH CANS AND LAWN FURNITURE... INDOORS TONIGHT AS THEY WILL LIKELY BE TOSSED ABOUT. MOTORISTS SHOULD USE EXTREME CAUTION TONIGHT... KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE AWAY FROM OTHER VEHICLES... AND KEEP HANDS FIRMLY ON THE WHEEL.
