Bartow County is currently under a wind advisory until seven o’clock Tuesday morning. A wind advisory means that winds of 35 miles-per-hour are expected. Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Use extra caution.
On top of that, Bartow County is expected to absorb heavy rain after eleven o’clock Monday night. The roads will be extremely slick due to oil buildup on the roadways. Please help out the first responders as well as yourself: slow down and use caution on the slick roads.
