Monday, Blowing on By...

A High Wind Warnings is in effect through the rest of this evening.

A deepening area of low pressure was slowly moving over North Carolina yesterday and brought with it heavy rain and severe storms. Now, even though this system has climbed up the East Coast we are still being dealt a difficult blow as winds are reaching 25-35 mph and gusts as high as 45-50.

These winds have been strong enough to uproot trees and shut down power across the state. Here are some pictures sent in to illustrate what can happen when heavy rain makes the ground soggy and strong winds knock down trees rooted in this soggy ground.

We expect winds to begin to relax once we reach tomorrow afternoon. Before then winds will range from 25-35 with higher gusts.
