That whooshing you hear outside is the wild wind arrived, as predicted.
A high wind warning is in full effect and extends until 9 a.m. Friday, according to WISN 12 News. Gusts could reach 50 miles per hour in some areas, including Racine County.
And while the warning officially expires tomorrow morning, WISN meteorologists are forecasting strong, sustained winds through much of the day. They’re even warning that high profile vehicles like trucks – and even SUVs – could suffer damage from getting “blown around.”
If the wild winds weren’t enough, temperatures are falling and turning all that rain that fell Thursday into ice. Highs tomorrow are only expected to top out in the mid-twenties, which means travel on area roadways could prove slippery.
