The National Weather Service in Jackson has issued a Wind
Advisory, which is in effect from 10 AM Saturday to 4 AM EST

* TIMING...Peak winds outside of any thunderstorms will likely
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
and evening. Wind gusts may reach 50 mph on ridges above 2500
feet elevation.

* IMPACTS...Travelers may find travel difficult on east to west
highways during the day on Saturday and on north to south
highways late Saturday afternoon and evenings. In addition,
gusts in the 40 to 50 mph range can cause some tree limbs or
weakly rooted trees in hilly terrain to fall, possibly leading
to isolated power outages. Winds of this magnitude will cause
rough chop on area lakes as well.


A Wind Advisory means that wind gusts of 40 mph or higher are
expected. Winds this strong can make driving difficult,
especially for high profile vehicles. Use extra caution.
