...HIGH WIND WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM THURSDAY MORNING
THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING...

* Timing: South to southwest winds will begin increasing early
  Thursday morning ahead of a strong cold front. Winds will peak
  Thursday afternoon and early evening before decreasing behind
  the front.

* Winds: South to southwest 20 to 35 mph with gusts to 65 mph
  possible. Wind-prone areas such as I-580 south of Reno and
  Highway 395 near Stead and Cold Springs could see gusts 65
  to 75 mph.

* Impacts: Dangerous cross-wind conditions, especially for high
  profile vehicles, may result in loss of vehicle control. Semi
  trucks will be in danger of tipping over. Travel restrictions
  are likely for high-profile vehicles. Possible damage to trees
  and powerlines.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Now is the time to secure loose outdoor items such as patio
furniture and trash cans before winds increase. 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.

Be prepared to take alternate routes if roads are closed due to
high winds, particularly if you plan on traveling in a high-
profile vehicle. Snow will follow the winds; see the special
weather statement for more details.
