The National Weather Service in Cleveland has issued a wind advisory for Huron County and the surrounding areas that will be in effect until midnight.

South winds of 20 to 35 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph, are expected.

The advisory went into effect at noon.

Strong winds may blow down limbs, trees, and power lines. Scattered power outages are expected, the weather service reported.

There also is a slight risk for severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. A cold front will enter the region and allow for thunderstorms to develop later today. These storms could become severe with damaging straight line winds or a brief tornado as the main threats, the weather service reported.

A wind advisory is issued for sustained winds of 31 to 39 mph or gusts between 46 and 57 mph.

Winds of this magnitude can cause minor property damage without extra precautions.

Motorists should use caution especially motorists in high profile vehicles.
