Expires 11:00 PM EDT on September 21, 2017


... Wind Advisory remains in effect until 9 PM MDT this evening...

* affected area... west-central and southwest Utah, Utah's Dixie
and Zion National Park, south-central Utah, The Glen canyon
Recreation Area, and the San Rafael Swell.

* Winds... southwest winds 25-35 mph with gusts to 50 mph.

such as Highway 50 across western Utah, Highway 89 across far
southern Utah, I-70 across the San Rafael Swell, and portions
of I-15 across southwest Utah. Occasional reductions in
visibility may be possible in blowing dust. These winds will
create very choppy water on area lakes including Lake Powell,
and generate large waves which could capsize or swamp small
craft.

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.
