...Strong Winds Likely This Morning In Association With A Passing
Cold Front...

Strong southerly winds will increase ahead of a cold front this
morning. Wind gusts between 25 and 35 mph are possible through
late this morning. A line of showers, potentially heavy at times,
will also accompany the cold front. Some of these heavier showers
could result in wind gusts up to 40 mph in isolated locations.
Once the cold front pushes east of the state by early this afternoon,
winds will shift to a more westerly direction and gusts will
diminish to between 15 and 25 mph.

The strong winds out of the south will make travel difficult for
high profile vehicles on east-west highways. Unsecured outdoor
objects such as trash cans may be blown around.
