High wind watch: 50 to 60 mph gusts possible

High winds are blowing in this evening and through Sunday.

Posted by The Huron Hub | Saturday, March 5, 2022

All of southeast Michigan is currently under a high wind watch through Sunday afternoon.

Gusts between 50 and 60 mph are possible during the watch timeframe.

Sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph are expected.

Additional info: Strong winds will occur along and behind a cold front. Confidence is high for wind gusts up to 50 mph, with still some uncertainty as to the chances for gusts up to or in excess of 60 mph. Isolated thunderstorms are also possible which would only increase the risk of damaging winds.

Damaging winds could blow down trees and power lines. Widespread power outages are possible. Travel could be difficult, especially for high profile vehicles.
