Wind Advisory and Arctic Air
WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 9AM - 6PM FRIDAY
Cold Arctic air will continue surging eastward through the WEAR-TV area. Our temperatures will fall quickly through the day as we start in the 60s and end in the 30s! All of the rain has moved out early morning, so we are left with decreasing humidity, decreasing clouds and increasing winds.
The cold air will stick around for at least the next week as we will see high temperatures in the 40s and 50s and low temperatures in the 20s and 30s!
* REMEMBER the 5 PSs:
Protect People - Pay careful attention to children and the elderly. Dress in layers when going out, especially at night when temperatures are below freezing.
Protect your Pets - Pets inside! If is too cold for you to sleep outside, it is likely too cold for them. If your pet MUST be left outside, they should have an blankets placed in an enclosed shelter with the entrance facing away from the wind.
Protect your Plants - Cover them with blankets or bring them inside.
Pipes - Open cabinet doors to allow heat to get to pipes under sinks and appliances near exterior walls. Turn on a small stream of water from the faucets. Allow water running at half the diameter or a pencil when temperatures drop below freezing.
Practice Fire Prevention - Inspect all heating equipment before using. According to the National Fire Protection Association, incorrect use of heating equipment is the leading cause of home fires.
