DENTON –– High winds have forced Denton County officials to postpone aerial spraying until Friday night. 

In a news alert, Emergency Services spokesman Jamie Moore says the expected 20 mile-per-hour wind gusts this evening are too high to ensure “maximum effectiveness and accuracy.” 

He said winds can’t be higher than 10 miles-per-hour and that the county would delay it another day if Friday winds also top that. 

The spray time would be the same, 9 p.m. Friday until 2 a.m. Saturday. Dallas County also suffered delays when it sprayed because of rain.
