...Strong Gusty Winds Are Expected To Continue Until Sunset...
Sustained winds this afternoon will continue at 15 to 25 mph out
of the south, with gusts in the 30 to 40 mph range, for the
remainder of the daylight hours. Isolated gusts above 40 mph are
possible. Winds are expected to diminish through the evening.
Expect these strong winds to impact area travel and outdoor work,
so be advised, especially if driving a high profile vehicle.
Mobile homes and construction sites will feel the impact of these
winds and gusts. Also, the southern orientation of the wind will
create especially choppy conditions for north to south running
lakes, like Rend and Kentucky Lakes, as well as Lake Barkley.
