...WIND ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM MST /1 PM PDT/ THIS
AFTERNOON TO 8 PM MST /8 PM PDT/ THIS EVENING...

* AFFECTED AREA...The south-central deserts of Arizona including
the greater Phoenix area and communities such as Casa Grande,
Florence, Wickenburg and Tonopah. Other areas include the
higher terrain of southern Gila County including communities
of Globe, Miami and San Carlos.

* TIMING...Winds will increase during the late morning hours and
peak from the mid afternoon through early evening before
tapering off. Strongest winds will accompany a cold frontal
passage moving southeast through the deserts this afternoon.

* WINDS...Southwest to west winds 10 to 20 mph becoming 15 to 30
mph during the afternoon and early evening with peak gusts in
excess of 40 mph. Favored higher terrain areas of southern
Gila County may see a few gusts to around 50 mph.

* IMPACTS...Strong gusty cross-winds will create dangerous
driving conditions for high profile vehicles especially those
driving along north to south oriented roads. Gusty winds may
also kick up areas of dense blowing dust resulting in sharply
restricted visibilities.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Wind Advisory means that sustained wind speeds of between
30 and 40 mph are expected, or wind gusts of between 40 and
58 mph. Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially
for high profile vehicles. In addition, strong winds over desert
areas could result in briefly lowered visibilities to well under
a mile at times in blowing dust or blowing sand. Use extra
caution.
