... Wind Advisory remains in effect until 10 PM MDT this evening...

* affected area... the southern Wasatch front.

* Winds... southwest winds will increase this morning into the 20
to 30 mph range with gusts of 50 mph. Winds will shift to
northwesterly this afternoon and remain strong before
diminishing this evening.

* Impacts... high profile vehicles and those with trailers should
use extra caution. Visibilities may be reduced locally due to
blowing dust. Gusty winds will make for a rough chop on area
lakes. Wind sensitive operations may be impacted.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Wind Advisory means that sustained wind speeds of at least
31 mph or gusts of 45 mph are expected. Motorists in the advisory
area should be prepared for sudden gusty cross winds which can
make driving difficult.

The strong winds will create dangerous boating conditions on area
lakes. These winds will create very choppy water and generate
large waves which could capsize or swamp small craft. For your
personal safety... operators of small craft are urged to postpone
their outings until the winds subside.
