...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 9 AM THIS MORNING TO 6 PM CST
THIS EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Topeka has issued a Wind
Advisory, which is in effect from 9 AM this morning to 6 PM CST
this evening.

* TIMING...Strong and gusty winds will quickly increase by 9 AM
  this morning and persist through much of the afternoon.

* WINDS...Sustained winds of 30 to 35 mph are expected with gusts
  up to 45 to 50 mph. The strongest wind gusts are expected
  between 9 AM and noon.

* IMPACTS...Travel will be difficult for high-profile vehicles
  traveling on west to east roads such as Interstates 70 and 35. A
  very high fire danger exists today and strong winds will make
  it very hard to control any fires. Outdoor burning is strongly
  discouraged.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

gusts of at least 45 mph are expected. Steps should be taken to
secure any lawn furniture or light weight objects and use extra
caution when driving.
