A High Wind Warning and Wind Advisory are in effect for the region through Midnight tonight. Here's a look at a few local weather stations.

Below are some weather widgets I have put together from our partners over at WeatherBug. These will update every minute or so with the latest winds and directions. You can also click on the widget to go to the weatherbug site and check out a few of their cameras we often use.
As of Noon today, we are still under a east to northeasterly flow through much of the D.C. area as the warm front is still located to our south. The cold front is sweeping in from the west and a few thunderstorms have developed along it. This is expected to push through during the early afternoon hours. After it moves through, the winds will pick up in a major way, which is why there is a Wind Advisory in the Metro and a High Wind Warning west. Winds may gust up to 60mph at times. You can also check this map for a look at the latest gusts.
