(7:30PM - 11/25/19) A storm system is expected to move across the region Tuesday and Wednesday, which will bring an extended period of high winds to the state.
The high winds during this period will be a product of a quickly organizing and strengthening storm system, and associated strong jet streak aloft. 850mb winds aloft of 40-60kts is likely, with mixing potentially up near that level at times, which correlates to the expected high winds at the surface.
Winds will increase across the state late Tuesday afternoon and into Tuesday night, as the storm system enters the region. Wind gusts will increase to 20-40mph across the state during this time. Overnight Tuesday and into Wednesday afternoon, winds will increase even more. This will occur just ahead of a passing cold front, and on the backside of the storm system. Wind gusts during this time will be in the 45-60mph range. Isolated higher wind gusts in excess of 60mph will be possible as well. Winds will gradually diminish later Wednesday afternoon and evening across the state.
Due to the expected wind gusts and prolonged nature of higher wind gusts, some tree damage and power outages will be possible across the state.
Below is the TAM high wind forecast for this event.
