Strong Winds and Rain to Accompany Unseasonably Warm Temps Today

by MCS Staff

Temperatures could reach 70° today, but that is likely to come with gusty south to southwest winds (30-40 mph), according to the National Weather Service.

Per the NWS:

• A strong cold front will pass through from northeast to southeast late this afternoon and evening. This will likely lead to an abrupt wind shift to the northwest with gusts around 40-50mph for many locations.

• A line of showers and perhaps an isolated thunderstorm will accompany the frontal passage. Damaging wing gusts are possible with this line. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out (mainly east of the Blue Ridge).

The warm temperatures will not last long as it will become colder and blustery tonight with temperatures  dropping into the 40s and eventually the 30s (with wind chills making it feel colder) into tomorrow morning.
