High wind warning issued for Rockville, most of Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C.

The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning for Rockville and other portions of central, north central, northeast, northern and southern Maryland, the District of Columbia and northern and northwest Virginia. It will be in effect from 12:00 PM today, April 1, 2023 until 12:00 AM tomorrow, April 2. Winds are expected to be between 25 and 35 MPH during that period, with wind gusts up to 60 MPH expected.

Power outages and other damage from falling limbs and trees are expected. Take time now to ensure your phone is charged, your flashlight has fresh batteries, and you have a battery powered radio. The NWS recommends staying indoors, avoiding forested areas, staying away from windows, and remaining on the lower levels of your home if possible.

It's going to be "wild and woolly" out there, as the weatherman on the telephone used to say. Expect possible showers and thunderstorms, and even the chance of an isolated tornado this afternoon. The high temperature will be 76 degrees.
