Still More Wind

January 30, 2008 at 4:28 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

We saw gusts over 50 mph across most of the area Tuesday afternoon, primarily between noon and 2pm. The highest gust reported was 59 mph in McKinney. But winds dropped off quickly after dark. The wind will remain light and variable through early morning. But by mid-day Wednesday, a south wind will be increasing 15 to 25 mph. Already, a Red Flag Warning has been posted, from 11am through 6pm Wednesday, for high fire danger. And a Wind Advisory will be in effect everywhere west of Fort Worth, where winds are expected to exceed 30 mph. That advisory may later be extended eastward to include the Metroplex.

The next front will bring a chance of showers late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning. Then it will be windy and cooler on Thursday, with northwest winds at 20 to 30 mph. We should finally see a calm day on Friday.
