High winds are expected in Alexandria today, as the National Weather Service has issued a gale warning for the city and surrounding area.
That means it’s going to be a gusty day with sustained winds ranging from 39-54 miles per hour.
The advisory was issued just after 5 a.m. and includes the the Maryland portion of the Chesapeake Bay, tidal Potomac River, and Interstate 95 corridor through Northern Virginia, the District of Columbia and central Maryland.
Nearly half the country is under a winter weather advisory as storms are expected throughout the East Coast this week.
“There is an enhanced winter storm threat for Sunday (during the day) and Sunday night, with a slight winter storm threat through Monday night. If the threat materializes, it may cause travel disruptions,” according to NWS.
A storm system moving by to our south could bring a few flurries before dawn. Otherwise, this storm will result in a windy and cold day for our region. pic.twitter.com/Pal1oIL7FH
