It is going to be a blustery day across the state.
“Strong high pressure system moves in we can expect winds of 20 to 35 miles per hour with gusts to 45 miles per hour.”
Josh Boustead is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Valley and he says we will know fall has arrived.
“The first real strong fall system of the year and it has been a while since we we’ve had this strong of a system move through the area.”
Boustead says a wind advisory is in effect for today and it likely for Wednesday. He says if you have things that can blow around outdoors, make sure you secure them.
“Anything that is not tied down should be brought indoors. And, then again on Wednesday. Deck furniture. Trash cans.”
Temperatures are dropping too but Boustead says you likely won’t have to cover your outdoor plants.
“We’re not going to see tremendous cold air behind this system. Lows will dip to near freezing but we are not going to see that really hard freeze just yet.”
Boustead says we usually see our first frost well before now.
