  very strong winds. There may also be reduced visibility at times
  due to blowing dust which will make conditions even more
  hazardous.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Wind Advisory means that sustained wind speeds of between
30 and 40 mph are expected, or wind gusts of between 40 and

a mile at times in blowing dust or blowing sand. Use extra
caution.
