... High wind watch is cancelled...

The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City has cancelled the
high wind watch... with the Wind Advisory now continuing through
Saturday evening.

* Affected area... the Salt Lake and Tooele valleys... Great Salt
Lake Desert... west central and southwest Utah.

* Winds... southwest winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts of 50 mph will

Saturday afternoon and evening before decreasing.

* Impacts... expect strong Crosswinds to develop on Interstate
80... Highway 6 and state routes 56 and 21. High profile vehicles
and those with trailers should use extra caution. Visibilities
may be reduced locally due to blowing dust. Gusty wind will make
for a rough chop on area waterways. Wind sensitive operations
may be impacted.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Wind Advisory means that sustained wind speeds of at least 31
mph or gusts of 45 mph are expected. Motorists in the advisory
area should be prepared for sudden gusty cross winds which can
make driving difficult.

The strong winds will create dangerous boating conditions on area
lakes. These winds will create very choppy water and generate
large waves which could capsize or swamp small craft. For your
personal safety... operators of small craft are urged to postpone
their outings until the winds subside.
