E-mail Print PDF

A wind advisory went into effect at 2 a.m. Monday as a strong arctic front swept across North and Central Texas. The advisory remains in effect through noon.

A wind advisory means that sustained winds of at least 20 to 30 mph are expected. Today’s forecast predicts north winds to be 20-30 miles per hour with gusts up to 45 miles per hour, possibly sustaining at 30-35 miles per hour at times, according to National Weather Service forecasters.

In addition, the strong winds combined with much colder temperatures behind the front were expected to result in wind chill readings in the teens to lower 30s Monday morning, NWS forecasters predict.

These chilly winds could impact driving for high profile vehicles, making driving difficult. Boaters should use extra caution if venturing onto area lakes.

Outside Objects That are Not Secured will Easily Be Moved or tossed in Strong wind. Thus, residents may wish to take action to secure trash cans, lawn furniture and other lightweight outdoor objects that may be blown around in the strong winds.

Power lines could arc in the strong wind gusts. 

Outdoor burning is not recommended in these dry, cold windy conditions as the winds could easily whip a fire out of control quickly, causing it to blaze across large expanses quickly.
