...WIND ADVISORY FROM 7 PM WEDNESDAY TO 10 AM PST THURSDAY...

.DISCUSSION...Strong winds are expected to develop over the
project late this afternoon as a strong frontal system approaches
the coast. We may see sprinkles at times, but a wetting rain is
unlikely today. Very strong winds aloft will surface tonight,
although there is a chance winds decouple at times with brief
periods of lighter winds. Rain becomes more likely overnight, but
still shouldn`t amount to much. A wetting rain is likely as the
front moves through early afternoon Thursday, and winds will shift
to southwest and decrease behind the front.
