ATLANTA (AP) -- Wind gusts of up to 40 mph are possible across much of north and central Georgia, including the Gainesville area.
The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday for several Georgia counties.
Forecasters say they expect that very strong and gusty winds will cause moderate to large branches to fall, as well as trees that have been weakened by recent rains. They also warn drivers of high-profile vehicles to be aware of the strong winds expected Tuesday.
Meanwhile, a freeze warning has been issued for most of north and central Georgia, also including the Gainesville area, and a flood warning is in effect for flood-prone portions of Forsyth County. (See separate posting. Link below.)
