* TIMING...Winds will change little through the daylight hours,
  but decrease somewhat shortly after sunset.

  mph will be common, and a few may approach 60 mph.

  Christmas decorations and make travel for high profile vehicles
  difficult. Fire weather conditions will also be elevated in
  areas that do not receive sufficient precipitation. Any fires
  may spread quickly.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Wind Advisory means that sustained winds of 30 mph or wind
gusts of 45 mph or greater are expected. Winds this strong can
make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Use
extra caution.
