The National Weather Service in Jackson has issued a Wind

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
