again, that will continue eastbound towards smyrna for 11:26 andover. again, we're looking at a high wind event in particular after midnight with gusts 60 miles per hour possible through 9:00 in the morning. that's strong enough to down some trees and some power lines. if you have patio furniture outdoors bring that in and your garbage can, make sure that's secure with the stronger winds expected to develop after midnight and into the early morning hours. right now winds already picking up for western suburbs. reading at 48 miles per hour and 40 miles per hour towards lancaster. the numbers will continue to go up. coming up we'll see how strong the winds will get and how cold it will be heading into your sunday. an amber alert delay. a dispatcher error may have slowed that alert in the king of prussia kidnapping case. what we uncovered, next.
m. nbc10 uncovered the reason why it took so long for cellphone users to receive an amber alert following the abduction of an infant at the king of prussia mall thursday. >> our dispatcher may not have notified the state police through the exact protocols that they want which could potentially have slowed the process down. >> chief nolan says it seems the dispatcher simply put the words amber alert into a standard missing persons advisory even though the official process is much more complicated. that lapse led to a domino effect which ultimately caused the delay. the suspect in that kidnapping case is amore, police say she took the baby from the mall to a nearby home. she said she gave birth in february but the baby died a few hours later. amore is scheduled to be back in court april 15th. we'll be right back.
