Wind advisory in effect for Central Kentucky

A wind advisory for Central Kentucky is in effect from 7 p.m. Tuesday to 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Winds in the wake of a cold front might be strong enough to damage trees and power lines and make driving difficult, especially in high-profile vehicles, according to the National Weather Service in Louisville.

Sustained winds are expected to be between 20 and 35 mph, with gusts reaching as high as 45 mph, the Weather Service said in a release.

The advisory is active for almost all counties in the state, except for some areas along the Ohio border. Two counties in far Eastern Kentucky, Harlan and Letcher, are expected to experience gusts as high as 50 to 60 mph.
