Winds west from 15 to 25 mph are expected with gusts of up to 35 mph. The greatest intensity is expected from midnight Thursday through to 7 p.m. on Friday.
The impact of this could be:

A wind advisory means that sustained wind speeds of at least 20 mph, or gusts to 35 mph or stronger are expected. Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles.
Drivers are advised to use extra caution.
