Rowan weather: Another windy day

We had a windy weekend, and we’re going to have a windy Monday, too. And we have a freeze watch from 2-9 a.m. Wednesday. You gotta love spring.

Today will be sunny and 73. Southwest wind will blow at 6-15 mph, with gusts up to 25 mph. This has prompted a fire danger warning. Avoid any outdoor burning.

Tonight will be partly cloudy and 40, with more wind from the southwest at 9-13 mph, then shifting to the north northwest, with gusts up to 21 mph.

Much cooler Tuesday, with a high of 55 under sunny skies. North wind will blow at 9-11 mph. The low will dip below freezing, to 31, with a 5 mph east wind. Protect your plants against the freeze.

Wednesday will be sunny and 60, with south wind at 5-11 mph. A chance of showers grows to 70 percent Wednesday night, mainly after 1 a.m., with a low of 51.

We also have a 70 percent chance of showers for Thursday with mostly cloudy skies and a high of 64. The low will be 41.
