...HIGH WIND WATCH IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH FRIDAY
EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a High Wind
Watch, which is in effect from Friday afternoon through Friday
evening.

* Timing: Winds will increase across the Tahoe Basin, northeast
  California and northwest Nevada by late Friday morning. Winds
  will continue to strengthen and spread to much of the Highway
  395 corridor and east to about Highway 95 Friday afternoon.

* Winds: Widespread south winds 20 to 35 mph with gusts to 50 mph.
  Gusts to 65 mph in wind prone areas. There is the potential for
  a short duration, two to three hours, where the stronger winds
  could spread outside the windprone areas and onto valley floors.
  Sierra ridges will likely see gusts approaching 100 mph.

* Impacts: Winds will cause travel impacts for high profile
  vehicles in addition to turbulence, wind shear and mountain wave
  activity for aviation. Winds may be strong enough to cause
  damage and blow high profile vehicles over, especially along the
  Highway 395 and I-580 corridor. In addition, dangerous
  conditions are likely on Lake Tahoe and other area lakes.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Now is the time to secure loose outdoor items such as patio
furniture, holiday decorations, and trash cans before winds
increase which could blow these items away. 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.
