PUBLIC WATCHES and WARNINGS for WINDS


The strong winds that have buffeted various regions of the country during the last several weeks have necessitated the National Weather Service to issue statements to the public that pertain to winds that may not necessarily be associated with local convective storms (i.e., thunderstorms) nor tropical systems (e.g., hurricanes). One segment of the public targeted are those who drive "high profile vehicles", such as tractor-trailers or campers, that can be tipped over by the winds.

Gale and storm warnings that are issued for maritime interests will be described in a Supplemental Summary next week.
