... Wind Advisory remains in effect from 7 am this morning to 1 am
* timing... gusty winds are expected to affect eastern Kentucky
today through the evening.
* Winds... peak winds of 40 to 45 mph are possible this morning
through the evening.
* Impacts... travelers may find travel difficult on east to west
highways during the day and on north to south highways this
evening. In addition, gusts of 40 to 45 mph can cause some tree
limbs or weakly rooted trees in hilly terrain to fall,
potentially resulting in isolated power outages. Winds of this
magnitude will cause rough chop on area lakes, as well.

expected. Winds this strong can make driving difficult,
especially for high profile vehicles. Use extra caution.
