A Wind Advisory remains in effect until 9 PM CDT this evening.
* Wind... from the north... sustained at 25 to around 35 mph...
with gusts into the 45 to around 55 mph range.
* Timing... wind speeds will peak in intensity during the mid to
late afternoon hours... and then slowly subside below advisory
criteria this evening.
* Impacts... outdoor objects should be secured so that they are
not blown about by the strong winds. Driving may be difficult
due to strong winds and sudden gusts... especially on west to
east oriented roads. In addition... these strong winds may
result in reduced visibilities as wet snow falls across parts
of the area this afternoon into this evening.
A Wind Advisory means that sustained wind speeds between 30 to
39 mph or gusts between 45 to 57 mph are expected. Winds this
strong can make driving difficult... especially for high profile
vehicles. Use extra caution.
