D.C. area residents will have to hold onto their hats as a wind advisory remains in effect for the area throughout the day.
The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory that will remain in effect until 2 a.m. Wednesday.
A low pressure system will help to produce strong gusty winds across the mid Atlantic. A wind advisory means that gusts up to 45 mph are expected.
Winds are expected to increase to between 20 and 30 mph by late Tuesday morning. Winds of up to 45 mph are expected to last through the evening.
Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Winds this strong can also down trees and power lines. Residents are encouraged to use extra caution.
