Rowan weather: Winds gusting up to 40 mph

Update:

West to northwest winds have become quite gusty early this afternoon, especially across the Piedmont of the Carolinas and northeast Georgia. Frequent wind gusts of 30 to 40 mph are expected to continue through the rest of the afternoon. These gusts may bring down small tree branches and will make for difficult travel at times for high profile vehicles. Wind gusts are expected to diminish through this evening.

The temperature won’t change much today, with a morning temperature of 58, the high will be around 60. The 40 percent of showers should dissipate around 9 a.m. and the sky will clear gradually.

It will be a windy day, though, with west winds at 9-17 mph, gusting as high as 30 mph.

Tonight will be clear and cold with a low of 32 and west wind at 5-8 mph.

Friday’s high will be 46, with mostly sunny skies and winds from the west southwest at 6-11 mph in the morning. Friday night’s low will dip to 28 degrees, with west wind around 7 mph.

Saturday will be sunny and 46 again, with west southwest wind at 6-11 mph. The low will be 28 again.

Sunday will be mostly sunny and 47, with a low of 27.

Monday is going to be sunny again, but cooler, with a high of 42. The low will be 26.

Then we warm up Tuesday, with mostly sunny skies and a high of 53. The night’s low will be 35.

Wednesday will be mostly sunny, too, with a high of 56.
