HIGH WIND WARNING UNTIL 10 A.M.
Low pressure will track across Lake Erie early this morning, accompanied by powerful wind gusts in excess of 50 mph in some areas. Peak gusts of 63 mph were recorded at the airport in Marysville and 60 mph at Xenia.
A high wind warning will be in effect until 10 a.m. for central Ohio and 2 p.m. farther east. There will be a risk of damaging wind gusts, as low pressure intensifies over Lower Michigan this morning, so make sure you secure outdoor patio furniture, toys and any loose items.
Wind gusts will exceed 40 mph north of I-70 during the morning commute in the wake of a cold front, gradually diminishing later this morning.
