Today is going to be a windy one, according to The National Weather Service, which predicted breezy conditions in the Austin area and South Central Texas.


Through mid-morning to the evening hours, the Austin area should expect 15-20 mph sustained winds with the occasional 30-35 mph gust of wind.

In the Edwards Plateau and the Hill Country, occasional gusts up to 40 mph can be expected, though temperatures remain around the mid-60s.

A 10 a.m. snapshot showed winds ranging from 30-37 mph in the Central Austin area, so it is recommended to secure any loose decorations or anything that might blow away outside.

Winds are expected to subside to around 10 mph this evening. Tomorrow is expected to be sunny with variable light winds, according to The Weather Channel.
