A cold front will move through the region on Monday. Ahead of the front, strong southerly winds are anticipated. Winds will be sustained in the 20-30mph range and could gust up to 50mph, especially at locations under the Wind Advisory.

As with any high wind event, a few downed trees and sporadic power outages are possible. Unsecured items like garbage cans and lawn furniture should be moved indoors. Also be sure to secure any outdoor decorations that may be on display.
