...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM SATURDAY TO 4 AM EST
SUNDAY...

The National Weather Service in Jackson has issued a Wind
Advisory, which is in effect from 10 AM Saturday to 4 AM EST
Sunday.

* TIMING...Peak winds outside of any thunderstorms will likely
  occur in two waves. Gusty winds are expected late in the morning
  to early afternoon hours. Another wave of stronger wind gusts
  are forecast during the evening to overnight hours.

* WINDS...Peak winds of 40 to 45 mph are forecast in the morning
  and then peak gusts around 45 mph are during the late afternoon
  and evening. Wind gusts may reach 50 mph on ridges above 2500
  feet elevation.

* IMPACTS...Travelers may find travel difficult on east to west
  highways during the day on Saturday and on north to south
  highways late Saturday afternoon and evenings. In addition,
  gusts in the 40 to 50 mph range can cause some tree limbs or
  weakly rooted trees in hilly terrain to fall, possibly leading
  to isolated power outages. Winds of this magnitude will cause
  rough chop on area lakes as well.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Wind Advisory means that wind gusts of 40 mph or higher are
expected. Winds this strong can make driving difficult,
especially for high profile vehicles. Use extra caution.
