High Wind Warning – 60 MPH Gusts Expected in Schuylkill County Friday



National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning for Schuylkill County and several more eastern Pennsylvania counties from Friday, April 30, from 2 p.m. until 2 a.m. Saturday, May 1.

Forecasters believe Schuylkill County will experience sustained winds out of the northwest at 25-35 mph. Gusts could reach up to 60 mph.

As with any weather event with strong winds, power outages are possible from felled trees on power lines. High-profile vehicles may have difficulty managing some of the strong gusts of wind, too.

For people in High Wind Warning areas, National Weather Service suggests avoiding wooded areas and even to remain in lower levels of your home, avoiding being near windows.

In addition to Schuylkill County, the following areas in Pennsylvania are in a High Wind Warning starting Friday afternoon:

  • Fulton County
  • Franklin County
  • Perry County
  • Dauphin County
  • Lebanon County
  • Cumberland County
  • Adams County
  • York County
  • Lancaster County
