BUCKHANNON - Buckle up, friends - we've got a doozy of a wind warning headed our way!
Get ready for another potentially tumultuous period of atmospheric disturbance beginning tomorrow morning, the first day of April 2023.
A wind advisory of significance is in effect from 8:00am to 8:00pm, and even though it will be April Fool's Day, please be advised that this is not a joke.
We may be feeling the full force of Mother Nature's gusty wrath, with southwest winds clocking in at 25 to 35 mph and gusts of up to 60 mph, there may be some windy chaos.
Brace yourself for the potential of knocked-down trees, downed power lines, and widespread power outages.
And high-profile vehicle owners, this is not the time to show off your fancy wheels - keep them parked until this blows over. While the winds will be raging all day long, the most ferocious gusts will hit from late morning to early afternoon.
While the winds will be raging all day long, the most ferocious gusts will hit from late morning to early afternoon. So if you're looking to weather the storm, steer clear of wooded areas and cozy up in the lower levels of your home. And if you absolutely must hit the road, don't forget to drive defensively - these winds aren't playing around!
Be sure to secure your outdoor belongings and make sure your outdoor items don't blow away with them - anchor them down and stay steady! Stay safe, friends!
