Wind advisory issued for Ann Arbor area; cold front to send temperatures plunging
High winds today may bring down tree limbs and cause power outages in the Ann Arbor area, forecasters warn, and temperatures will plunge this evening in the wake of a cold front moving through the area.
Winds will begin to pick up by about 9 a.m. and increase through the morning, with the strongest winds from late morning into the afternoon, said Dave Gurney, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in White Lake Township.
The weather service warned driving could become difficult for high-profile vehicles, such as vans.
Before temperatures begin to fall around 5 p.m., a high of about 70 degrees is expected. Some scattered showers are possible between 10 a.m. and noon.
Showers are possible before 9 tonight, and temperatures will fall to around 35 under partly cloudy skies. It will continue to be breezy, with a west-northwest wind between 14 and 22 mph and gusts as high as 36 mph.
