Northwestern Nye County-
Including the cities of Tonopah and Round Mountain
201 PM PST Fri Nov 17 2017

Strong northwest winds have developed across portions of Northern
Nye County, especially across US Highway 6 near the airport, as
well as the lee-side of mountains. Wind speeds of 45 to 55 mph
are common in these locations, and will continue to blow through
the early evening hours before subsiding. If driving along US
Highway 6 or State Route 376, use caution especially if driving a
high profile vehicle. Sudden wind speed changes could cause you to
lose control of your vehicle, so drive slowly and allow extra
time to reach your destination.
