Gusty Southwest Winds Expected Today…CASS-ADAIR-ADAMS-GUTHRIE-CRAWFORD-CARROLL-RINGGOLD-TAYLOR & UNION COUNTIES…

Strong southwest winds to near 30 mph at times with gusts approaching 35 to 45 mph at times will be likely for the remainder of this morning and through most of the afternoon. Travelers on east west roads especially should be aware of difficult driving conditions at times. High profile vehicles should also be especially careful of crosswinds on interstates and area highways through the day today.

Outdoor burning is also discouraged over this area for the remainder of the day due to the stronger southwest winds and higher wind gusts expected through late afternoon. The winds will lessen during the evening hours with light winds overnight tonight.
