Windy weather causes flight delays

The Washington area has a windy afternoon ahead, according to the Post's Capital Weather Gang. Jason Samenow says gusts in excess of 40 mph are possible, and the area is under a high wind warning from 2 to 7 p.m. However, airports in the Northeast are already experiencing severe delays due to the wind. New York and Philadelphia area airport delays are in excess of three hours in some cases, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, so check with your airline if you're connecting through any of those locations.

Report power outages, road issues

The possibility of thunderstorms and dangerous winds may cause many travel problems around the region. We may face power outages that play havoc with traffic signals and falling tree limbs and other debris that block travel lanes. The Bay Bridge is already operating under a wind warning, urging drivers of high-profile vehicles, especially house and box trailers, to use caution. Here are some resources for reporting power outages, downed trees and debris in roadways as the weather threatens to deteriorate.
