winds of 30 to 45 mph with gusts up to to 65 mph during the
evening. These strong winds will cause areas of blowing dust

From Thursday night into Saturday night, a strong and slow moving upper

rain to the region. Many locations will receive from near an inch
to around an inch and a half. These amounts are lower than
yesterday due to the storm now expected to go further south.
