It's for that fact a Wind Advisory will go into effect Friday night, lasting through Sunday morning. With these strong winds coming through, the risk of power outages and trees coming down is high.
It is also the combo of very dry vegetation across the region (thanks to a dry start to the rainy season), along with very low humidity levels and now these strong winds that any fires can easily start and easily spread! Stay vigilant this weekend.
