1 min read

WASHINGTON — Anyone traveling in the D.C. region is being warned of strong winds coming through the area.

The National Weather Service has placed the District under a High Wind Warning for the likelihood of strong winds, of up to 65 mph, through Saturday at midnight. 

WUSA9 Meteorologist Makayla Lucero reminds homeowners to bring any items in from the outside that may blow away due to the strong winds, but only if it is safe to do so.

Lucero says the winds are accompanying a cold front that is coming through the region.

Sustained winds ranging from 25-35 mph and gusts ranging from 55-65 mph are predicted.

Lucero claims the strongest winds will be felt around 7 p.m., with winds expecting to reach 43 mph.

She says not to be surprised if those winds feel a little bit stronger than reported.

Power outages and downed limbs are also possible.

Strong winds are expected to last from now until early morning on Sunday.

Lucero says howling winds could keep some DMV residents up when heading to bed tonight.
