Central Virginia bracing for high winds

04 March 2018

The monster storm off the coast of the northeastern United States continues to cause strong wind gusts across the Commonwealth. Sunday will still be seasonably cool with partial sunshine.

Tonight, lows will stay warm for this time of the year, mostly in the 40s and 50s. Gusts could exceed 45 mph in the metro, over 50 mph at the coast, over 55 mph across far northern Virginia, and over 60 mph in the mountains.

After a cool morning, temperatures will climb to near 60 in the afternoon with abundant sunshine and south-southeast winds up to 15 miles per hour.

It will be another chilly night with clear skies and temperatures falling into the low 30s by morning. Windy, with a west wind 9 to 14 miles per hour increasing to 21 to 26 miles per hour in the morning.

The winds subside overnight Sunday into Monday, which combined with the colder temperatures will create a better chance for frost Monday morning.

The morning low on Saturday will be in the mid 30s with a wind chill in the mid 20s.
