The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning for much of the Radio 104.5 listening area, with the forecast of wind speeds around 25-35 MPH and gusts up to 60 MPH!  Additionally, we're expecting pockets of rain which could amount to an inch around Philly, and cause flooding in poor drainage areas (ie the river drives).

So, needless to say, travel around Philly will probably be a bit gnarly today. Be safe!
