Expires 7:00 PM EST on February 21, 2017


... Wind Advisory remains in effect until 4 PM PST this
afternoon...

* timing: gusty winds will continue today, with the strongest
winds expected this morning across the Reno-Carson City

Local gusts up to 65 mph in wind prone areas.

* Wave heights on pyramid lake: 1 to 3 feet. Small boats,
kayaks and paddle boards will be prone to capsizing and
should remain off lake waters until conditions improve.

* Impacts: prepare for sudden increases in wind gusts, with
hazardous travel conditions for high profile vehicles along

outages are also possible. Strong turbulence and wind shear
could impact aviation travel.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Secure loose outdoor items such as patio furniture and trash
cans. The best thing to do is prepare ahead of time by making
sure you have extra food and water on hand, flashlights with
spare batteries and/or candles in the event of a power outage.
