Looks like it's going to a bit blustery today with winds strong enough to down tree limbs, affect traffic and cause isolated power outages.
The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a wind advisory for much of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, including Burlington for today. The advisory is in effect starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 10 p.m.
NWS states that there is a "high probability" of south-west winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour with gusts up to 50 miles per hour.
The NWS advisory states the winds will increase during the morning hours and will be strongest mid-day and into the afternoon. Winds will likely diminish overnight with the passage of a cold front, the advisory states.
Gusts that fast may cause some damage. According to the NWS, winds may be capable of downing small tree limbs and branches and cause isolated power outages. Driving may also be difficult, especially for vehicles with high profiles.
According to NWS a wind advisory is issued when sustained winds are forecast to be between 31 an 39 miles per hour or when gusts are expected to be between 46 and 57 miles per hour
