NWS Issues High Wind Watch for Foxborough Area Wednesday

A high wind watch has been issued for Wednesday night because of potentially damaging winds with gusts up to 45 mph.

Wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour on Wednesday night could bring down trees and power lines throughout the Foxborough area, warns the National Weather Service.

A high wind watch was issued Wednesday by the weather service in Taunton for much of eastern Massachusetts, including Foxborough, because the southwest winds at 20-30 mph could gust to 50-60 mph.

The high wind watch means the potential exists for strong and damaging winds in Foxborough. The strong winds could bring down trees and power lines as well as cause property damage, the weather service said.

The high wind watch runs from 9 p.m. Wednesday evening through 8 a.m. Thursday morning.

“Unsecured outdoor objects may become damaged and/or airborne,” the weather service warned. “Hazards will be possible for motorists and pedestrians as well as to structures.”

If a high wind watch is elevated to a high wind warning, the weather service said people should stay inside and away from windows.
