With soil loosened by recent heavy rains, trees will be more easily uprooted by the strong winds, which will also be capable of knocking down power lines and causing power outages.
Cold temperatures Friday morning will affect sensitive outdoor plants. A frost advisory means that frost is imminent; sensitive outdoor plants may be killed if left uncovered.
Winds can also make driving difficult especially for high-profile vehicles or motorcycles. Use extra caution.
