The National Weather Service in Tucson has issued a Blowing Dust
Advisory, which is in effect from 11 AM this morning to 8 PM MST

* IMPACTS...Strong winds will result in areas of dense
blowing dust along Interstate-10 near San Simon and the
Willcox Playa. Blowing dust can restrict visibilities below a
mile posing a significant hazard to motorists. In general,
winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for
high profile vehicles. In addition to roadway impacts, loose

diminishing by 8 PM.

* WINDS...Southwest to west winds 25 to 40 mph with gusts to
near 50 mph in the afternoon.

* VISIBILITY...Dense blowing dust near San Simon may reduce
visibility to less than a half mile at times. Otherwise,
blowing dust will occasionally limit visibility to less than a
mile at times.

* For a detailed view of the hazard area...visit
weather.gov/Tucson and click on the DETAILED HAZARDS tab

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Wind Advisory means that sustained winds of 30 mph or greater
are expected in the valleys...or 35 mph or greater above
5000 feet. Higher gusts are also likely. This could make driving
difficult...especially for high profile vehicles. Use extra
caution.

A Blowing Dust Advisory means that blowing dust will restrict
visibilities below one mile in some areas. Travelers are urged to
use caution. If you encounter localized dense blowing dust...
especially near plowed fields or construction sites...do not
drive into it if at all possible.
