Strong winds will accompany the coldest air of the season so far.
Hold on to your trash cans and recycling bins, Mother Nature and Old Man Winter are teaming up for a special treat. Spent Christmas trees put out at the curb may find their way into the middle of the road, thanks to gusty winds.
As is often the case with some of the coldest outbreaks of the winter, strong winds will add to the shock of the dramatic change in weather during the first few days of the new year.
Wind gusts of 30, 40 and even 50 mph will blast from the Midwest to the Atlantic Seaboard over the next couple of days.
