Man the wind is blowing out there. Is there a Wind Advisory out for Wake county? John
Posted January 10, 2007
Observations around the area at the time included NW winds at 10 kt gusting to 23 kt (around 25 mph) at RDU. Gusts as high as 21 and 26 kt were observed at Sanford and Chapel Hill, with most other observations a bit lower than that.
The criteria for issuing a Wind Advisory is that sustained winds (2-minute average) will range in the 31-39 mph span, as opposed to the 10-15 mph we had last evening, or that wind gusts of any duration reach 46-57 mph, far stronger than the 25-30 mph gusts we were experiencing late Tuesday.
