National Weather ServiceHigh winds that have been blowing hard through Reston today are expected to continue into the early evening.

The National Weather Service in Sterling has issued a wind advisory for the entire region that is scheduled to be in effect until 6 p.m.:

* WINDS…Northwest 20 to 25 mph with gusts around 45 mph.

* IMPACTS…Gusty winds will blow around unsecured objects. Tree
limbs could be blown down and a few power outages may result.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

A Wind Advisory means that winds of 45 to 55 mph are expected.
Winds this strong can make driving difficult…especially for
high profile vehicles.

When combined with today’s temperatures in the 30s, the winds are going to make bundling up important.

    Fear not the breeze.
    Fear swaying trees.
