ATLANTA — Wind gusts of up to 40 mph are expected in parts of north and central Georgia as a cold front sweeps across the region.

Forecasters say even stronger gusts -- up to 45 mph -- are possible in a half-dozen counties in the north Georgia mountains.

The National Weather Service said wind advisories covering much of the state would be in effect through early Thursday morning.

Forecasters say the strong winds could bring down trees and branches already weakened by this winter’s ice and snow storms.

I hope it does bring down the three "hangers" I have in my back yard. They are too high for me to do anything with them, and too far out for a tree climber.

I'm staying away from any trees, and avoiding tree-lined roads. I'm not complaining, but it is a simple fact that there are "leaners" and "hangers" all over the CSRA. If you hear snaps, crackles or pops, you might want to protect your rice krispies, so to speak. Be ready to duck or if driving, try to have a plan B at all times as far as your direction, in case you have to avoid a falling tree or tree limb.

Windy up here on the brown Rd. Hill

We are seeing and feeling gusts and watching old hangers finally fall.

Already had the lights blink a few times.

Promises to be a interesting evening.
While not ICE storm levels, still interesting.

Even the Wife finally acknowledged those 3x 60+ft Sycamores I had cut down last year was the right idea.

☺Now if it would only rain for 40 days and nights to justify the ARK I have been building. ☺
