High wind warning overnight
Thu, 31 Oct 2013 19:38:56 GMT —
The NWS Detroit office has issued a high wind warning for most of the NBC25 viewing area starting at midnight tonight, lasting until 10am tomorrow morning.
A relatively modest area of low pressure currently sitting along the western shore of Lake Michigan will rapidly strengthen late tonight into early tomorrow morning as it moves across the northern L.P. and across Lake Huron.
This rapid intensification of the low will result in strong winds across Mid-Michigan.
Gusts could range from 50 to 55mph out of the southwest early on Friday morning.
This could result in downed trees and power lines, so be prepared for power outages and secure any loose items you may have lying around outside.
Trick-or-treaters shouldn't have to deal with the strongest of the winds as they'll be out before the above low really intensifies.
However, they'll still have to deal with gusts over 20mph along with periods of moderate to heavy rain.
Drivers early on Friday morning will also have to deal with the strong winds and should use caution, especially if operating a high profile vehicle.
