Blustery conditions to start the work week claimed one casualty Monday when a fallen tree knocked out power in the Camelot subdivision in Evans.
The tree on Sir Lancelot Drive temporarily knocked out the traffic signals at Washington Road and Ronald Reagan Drive, and the National Weather Service is warning of more potential problems from strong winds throughout the day.
Winds are expected to gust up to 40 mph through 8 p.m. Monday, and a freeze watch Monday night will be in effect until Tuesday morning with temperatures at daybreak at or near freezing.
Those winds will blow away the clouds Monday, with clear skies and high temperatures in the mid-50s warming into the 60s by the end of the week, with nighttime lows hovering in the mid to upper 30s. No rain is forecast through the weekend.
