NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Remember in school when they taught you about “isobars” or lines of equal pressure on a weather map?
The closer together they are packed, the stronger the winds.
Check out the “packed isobars” on the graphic to the left as a strong low pressure center passes to our northwest. That forecast map is for 6 a.m. Monday, BUT the winds will start increasing today to 15-25 mph.
Overnight tonight and tomorrow morning, we could see gusts 35-40 mph.
Monday morning wind gusts could reach up to 41 mph, according to our computer model Predictor’s forecast.
This could cause a few tree limbs to fall, possibly on power lines. Loose objects such as garbage cans should be secured by tonight. Tomorrow morning, construction workers should be careful on rooftops, and drivers of either high profile or also lightweight vehicles should use caution.
