gusts are forecast in the mid to late afternoon hours.
* WINDS...Again peak values near 40 mph are forecast in the
morning and then peak gusts to around 45 mph are forecast with
the second wave. This second wave also will feature a switch in
wind direction, from winds coming from the south to winds coming
from the northwest.
* IMPACTS...Those travelling early for the holiday week may find
