SEBASTIAN – We don’t think there’s any escape from today’s severe weather activity. A cold front is moving into Sebastian and bringing a lot of bad weather with it.

There is a Wind Advisory for Sebastian until 8:00 p.m. this evening. According to the advisory, sustained winds of 25 mph or higher are expected in our area.

Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Strong winds can blow around loose objects. We recommend securing your trash cans, lawn furniture and other objects that can be moved by the strong winds.

Wind gusts are expected to be 35 mph today in Sebastian. The severe weather will begin around 3:00 p.m. this afternoon and will last a couple of hours. Showers and thunderstorms are expected tonight with wind gusts as high as 20 mph. Tonight’s low will drop to 60 degrees with the cold front.

Saturday will have extreme winds of up to 30 mph, but the rain should clear out. The high will be 79; the overnight low will be 50 degrees.

Easter Sunday should be beautiful! It will be sunny with a high near 79, and winds will only be 5 to 10 mph. The overnight low will drop to 54.

Be safe everyone and Happy Easter!
