...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 8 PM MST FRIDAY...

The National Weather Service in Tucson has issued a Blowing Dust
Advisory, which is in effect from noon to 8 PM MST Friday. A Wind
Advisory has also been issued. This Wind Advisory is in effect
from noon to 8 PM MST Friday.

* IMPACTS...Strong winds will result in areas of dense blowing
  dust along Interstate-10 near San Simon and the Willcox Playa.
  Blowing dust can restrict visibilities below a mile posing a
  significant hazard to motorists. In general, winds this strong
  can make driving difficult, especially for high profile
  vehicles. In addition to roadway impacts, loose and unsecured
  outdoor objects may be blown around.

* TIMING...Winds will increase by late morning, with the strongest
  winds during the afternoon hours.

* WINDS...Southwest to west winds 25 to 40 mph with gusts to
  near 50 mph in the afternoon.

* VISIBILITY...Dense blowing dust near portions of I-10 east of
  Willcox may reduce visibility to less than a half mile at
  times. Otherwise, blowing dust will occasionally limit
  visibility to less than a mile.

* Current air pollution levels are available from the Pima

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

use caution. If you encounter localized dense blowing dust...
especially near plowed fields or construction sites...do not
drive into it if at all possible.

A Wind Advisory means that sustained winds of 30 mph or greater
are expected in the valleys...or 35 mph or greater above
5000 feet. Higher gusts are also likely. This could make driving
difficult...especially for high profile vehicles. Use extra
