High Wind WARNING / Fog Advisory

...DENSE FOG ADVISORY NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 AM EDT THIS
MORNING...
...HIGH WIND WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS
EVENING...

* VISIBILITIES...One quarter mile or less at times.

* WINDS...Southwest 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph becoming
west-northwest 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 60 mph this
afternoon.

* TIMING...Dense fog is continuing at this hour with conditions
expected to gradually improve late morning. Southwest winds
will increase this morning, then quickly shift to the west-
northwest as a strong cold front crosses the area late in the
morning into the early afternoon. A line of showers with
embedded thunderstorms will move through with the front, and
this could bring localized wind gusts of 50 to 60 mph. Following
the passage of the cold front, widespread west- northwest winds
gusting 45 to 60 mph will occur through the afternoon before
diminishing in the early evening.

* IMPACTS...Damaging winds will blow down trees and power lines.
Numerous power outages can be expected. Travel will be difficult
with the strong wind gusts, especially for high profile
vehicles. Limited visibilities will make travel very difficult
early this morning.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

or occurring. Sustained wind speeds of at least 40 mph or gusts
of 58 mph or more can lead to property damage.
