National Weather Service issued a Wind Advisory for Schuylkill County from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Friday, March 26.
Wind gusts during the Advisory time could reach 50 mph. Sustained winds through the day Friday should reach 20-25 mph.
These strong winds have the power to blow around unsecured objects, like empty trash cans. Tree limbs could fall and that not only presents a danger for road closures but power outages as well. Drivers in high-profile vehicles are also advised to travel with caution during a high wind event.
As you can see from this map, Schuylkill County doesn’t face the threat from strong winds alone Much of the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic face either a Wind Advisory or High Wind Warning on Friday.
