...WIND ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM TO 6 PM CST
WEDNESDAY...

* TIMING...Winds will strengthen northwest to southeast during
  the late morning hours and remain strong through sunset.

* WINDS...Northwest winds should reach sustained speeds of 25 to
  35 mph with gusts of 40 to 50 mph likely.

* IMPACTS...Winds of this magnitude may blow loose objects such as
  Christmas decorations and make travel for high profile vehicles
  difficult. Fire weather conditions will also be elevated in
  areas that do not receive sufficient  precipitation. Any fires
  may spread quickly. There may also be a brief period of low
  visibilities in blowing snow north during the morning.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Wind Advisory means that sustained winds of 30 mph or wind
gusts of 45 mph or greater are expected. Winds this strong can
make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Use
extra caution.
