(Cleveland)- The National Weather Service has issued two weather advisories for our area. NWS has a wind advisory in effect from 10 AM Wednesday morning until 1 AM Thursday. The advisory calls for winds 20 – 30 MPH with gusts up to 40 miles per hour, for north and central Georgia.
Forecasters say the winds will be strong enough to blow down some tree branches and with the relatively moist soil conditions it is possible that whole trees may be blown over onto roadways and power lines.
The wind chill advisory is in effect from 7 PM Wednesday evening until 10 AM Thursday morning. Forecasters advise that dangerously cold wind chills are expected. Those wind chill readings from 5 below in extreme north Georgia to around 10 in the central parts of the state.
The very cold air and strong winds can result in frost bite or hypothermia if proper precautions are not taken. According to the forecasters the winds will slowly decrease through the period from around 25 mph this evening to around 10 mph by mid-morning Thursday.
