CUMMING – A wind advisory is in effect in Forsyth County and much of north and central Georgia until 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 23, according to a National Weather Service hazardous weather outlook.
Winds of 20 to 25 miles per hour, with gusts of 25 to 35 mph are expected throughout the day, with gusts reaching near 40 mph in higher elevations.
The National Weather Service said though the advisory, as of midday Monday, expires at 7 p.m., “winds may remain gusty tonight in the higher terrain.”
Possible impacts include broken tree branches and for weaker trees to fall, “particularly those in saturated soils sue to recent heavy rainfall. Unsecured outdoor items may be blown around.”
Motorists are being cautioned to drive carefully, as strong winds can blow cars to the side, especially for high profile vehicles.
