* Impacts: strong Crosswinds will make for difficult driving
conditions on area roads including interstates 15 and 40 as
well as highways 58 and 395. Areas of blowing sand and dust
are possible resulting in reduced visibility. Any loose
objects outside will be blown away.

A Wind Advisory means that Crosswinds are expected to be strong
enough to make driving difficult... especially for high profile
vehicles. In addition... strong winds over desert areas could result
in briefly lowered visibilities to well under a mile at times in
blowing dust or blowing sand. Use extra caution.
