STRONG WINDS WILL DEVELOP ACROSS THE MID ATLANTIC TONIGHT AND FRIDAY. NORTHWEST WINDS OF 25 TO 35 MPH MAY GUST TO 60 MPH OVERNIGHT AND FRIDAY ... WINDS THIS STRONG WILL CAUSE DANGEROUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS ... AND MAY KNOCK DOWN TREES AND POWER LINES.

Trees may be particularly vulnerable because the ground has been saturated with snow for so long.
