Wild Weather Week: Damaging Winds, Power Outages, Plus Some Snow

"Damage to trees and power lines is likely". The Indianapolis International Airport had a measured wind gust at 65 miles per hour around 7 a.m.!

A wind advisory means that winds of 50 to 55 miles per hour are expected, making driving hard, especially for high-profile vehicles, according to the weather service.

While metro Detroit is expected to see high wind gusts with a High Wind Warning in effect throughout the day Sunday until 4 a.m. Monday, high winds will also hit northern lower MI with snow as well.

The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for the northern Piedmont and the northern Coastal Plain, saying the wind would blow from the west to northwest at 15 mph to 25 mph throughout the day, with gusts of 35 mph to 45 mph.

Whereas it's been very warm Sunday afternoon, Monday morning will be pretty cold.

Widespread power outages are expected.

Sunday's storm started out in Portland as snow, but by the end of the day had changed over to rain. Forecasters warned that many vehicles, especially those with a high profile, may have trouble on the roads Monday.

There's a 30 percent chance of snow showers before 11 a.m. Monday before the sun returns late in the morning and afternoon. That combination of cold air and strong wind gusts will make things feel rather uncomfortable at times through the morning.

The highest winds are expected to be Monday morning.
