According to the NWS, at this time Elmore County still has the potential to see elevated wind conditions (25 to 35 mph with gusts to 45 mph) as the core of Tropical Storm Irma moves through the area just to our east. We will remain under the Tropical Storm Warning until 1:00 a.m. Winds are expected to weaken below Tropical Storm force after 1:00 a.m. The peak time for winds to increase this evening are from 7:00 p.m. through 10:00 p.m. and then will begin to decrease through the early morning hours. A Wind Advisory may be issued for elevated winds a few hours after the Tropical Storm Warning expires.

Tomorrow winds will likely remain in the 10 to 20 mph range for a good portion of the day. Please stay prepared for the next several hours.

We will continue to post updates to our website at www.elmorecoema.com , Facebook and Twitter.
