Wind Advisory issued for parts of the Snake River Valley
In addition to the moisture moving into the region over the weekend, a Wind Advisory is now being thrown into the mix. You've probably read a lot lately about the moist subtropical air making its way into the region over the past several days, while that's still the case, very windy conditions are also expected for areas in eastern Oregon and southwest Idaho for Saturday afternoon.
A Wind Advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service in Boise for a wide area of southeast Oregon and southwest Idaho, from the Snake River Valley down to the Nevada border. The advisory is for Saturday afternoon through midnight. A strong Pacific storm system moving through will likely produce southwest winds of 30-40 mph with gusts up to 50 mph.
A travel hazard for high profile vehicles will likely be the biggest impact from the winds, however, minor property damage is also possible. A Wind Advisory is issued when 30 mph sustained winds are expected.
