Potential for spotty power outages heading into Thanksgiving
We’ll be breezy all day Wednesday, with the stronger gusts arriving Wednesday evening into the first half of Thanksgiving. Downed limbs and spotty power outages will be possible. We’re hopeful you don’t lose power, because it might take some time for crews to get things back to normal. While the wind decreases a bit Thanksgiving, it will still be pretty gusty at times. (The wind may also have a hand in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.)
