Gusty winds will be the main weather impact today, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini.

Winds will be out of the southwest becoming westerly through the day and will stay gusty as well. This brings impacts not only to your trashcans and some light deck furniture but also your car.

With winds coming out of the west, motorists driving north or south on I-75 you will feel the gusts. Drivers on westbound I-70 will be driving into the wind and might also feel some resistance.

Winds will be gusting anywhere from 25-35 mph which will be especially impactful to semi-trucks, trucks and SUVs which have a higher build. Remember to leave yourself plenty of space between the cars around you in case the wind causes anyone to swerve.
