WEST MICHIGAN-  A High Wind Warning will be in effect for Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m

Strong west-southwest winds will increase on Wednesday, especially from mid-morning to late afternoon. We can expect sustained winds of 30-40 mph with occasional gusts to 60 mph. The winds will diminish by Wednesday evening.

As is often the case, downed trees and limbs will lead to some problems on the roadways or near power lines.  Power outages will be possible on Wednesday as well, so if you're susceptible to power outages fairly often in these events, plan ahead.
