...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM TO 10 PM PST FRIDAY...

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a Wind Advisory,
which is in effect from 10 AM to 10 PM PST Friday. The High Wind
Watch is no longer in effect.

* Timing: Friday morning through Friday evening.

* Winds: Widespread south winds 25 to 35 mph with gusts to 50
  mph. Gusts to 65 mph in wind prone areas. Sierra ridges will
  likely see gusts over 100 mph.

* Impacts: Winds will cause travel impacts for high profile
  vehicles in addition to turbulence, wind shear and mountain wave
  activity for aviation. Winds may be strong enough to cause
  damage and blow high profile vehicles over, especially along the
  Highway 395 corridor. In addition, dangerous conditions are
  likely on Lake Tahoe and other area lakes.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Now is the time to secure loose outdoor items such as patio
furniture, holiday decorations, and trash cans before winds
increase which could blow these items away. The best thing to do
is prepare ahead of time by making sure you have extra food and
water on hand, flashlights with spare batteries and/or candles in
the event of a power outage.
