The National Weather Service is calling for a High Wind Warning in effect from 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Tuesday.
Thunderstorms may mix with the wind during the afternoon which could lead to large hail and even a possible tornado.
Winds will steadily blow between 25 and 35 MPH. Gusts are expected to exceed 50 MPH.
The weather service says winds of that magnitude may cause property damage. Drivers in high-profile vehicles like vans, SUVs, or semis should use caution until the winds subside.
Local power companies like Duke Energy and Southeast Indiana REMC will be gearing up for outages throughout the day.
Duke Energy has warnings for people who may be affected by the high winds:
Have coolers on hand to keep refrigerator food cold if the power will be out for more than 4 hours.
Stay away from downed or sagging power lines. Don't touch anything that's on or near one!
