...WIND ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1 AM EST SUNDAY...

* TIMING...Gusty winds are expected to affect eastern Kentucky through
  the evening.

* WINDS...Peak winds of 40 to 45 mph are possible.

* IMPACTS...Travelers may find travel difficult on east to west
  highways during the day and on north to south highways this
  evening. In addition, gusts of 40 to 45 mph can cause some
  tree limbs or weakly rooted trees in hilly terrain to fall,
  potentially resulting in isolated power outages. Winds of this
  magnitude will cause rough chop on area lakes, as well.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Wind Advisory means that wind gusts of 40 mph or higher are
expected. Winds this strong can make driving difficult,
especially for high profile vehicles. Use extra caution.
