Hold on to your hat! Very windy conditions are expected this afternoon into Friday morning.
A wind advisory is in effect until noon Friday for Denton County, according to the National Weather Service.
Northerly winds will increase to around 25 to 35 mph, with gusts upwards of 40 to 45 mph. An isolated gust as high as 50 mph is possible.
Loose outdoor objects, such as Christmas decorations, will likely be blown about in the wind. Driving will become difficult on east-west oriented roads, like FM 407 and FM 1171, especially for those in high-profile vehicles. A few falling tree branches will pose a hazard. Additionally, isolated power outages will be possible.
The winds will make driving difficult for all vehicles. Boaters should stay off area lakes as waters will become very rough. Weak trees may be blown over and some minor structural damage is also possible. Residents should take action to ensure all lightweight
outdoor objects are secured.
Hold on to your hats, glue down your toupées, tie down your Christmas decorations, bring the trash cans in the garage!! Wind gusts in excess of 50MPH are possible late Thursday into Friday as a potent system blasts through NTX. A wind advisory is posted accordingly. #wfaaweather pic.twitter.com/7Hya2QGoWF
