...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM TO 8 PM PST FRIDAY...

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a Wind Advisory,
which is in effect from 10 AM to 8 PM PST Friday. The High Wind
Watch is no longer in effect.

* Timing: Friday morning through Friday evening.

* Winds: Widespread south winds 25 to 35 mph with gusts to 50 mph.
Gusts to 65 mph in wind prone areas. Sierra ridges will likely
see gusts over 100 mph.

* Impacts: Winds will cause travel impacts for high profile
vehicles in addition to turbulence, wind shear and mountain
wave activity for aviation. Winds may be strong enough to
cause damage and blow high profile vehicles over, especially
along the Highway 395 and I-580 corridor. In addition,
dangerous conditions are likely on Lake Tahoe and other area
lakes.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Now is the time to secure loose outdoor items such as patio
furniture, holiday decorations, and trash cans before winds
increase which could blow these items away. The best thing to do
is prepare ahead of time by making sure you have extra food and
water on hand, flashlights with spare batteries and/or candles in
the event of a power outage.
