A Wind Advisory remains in effect for Rolla until 7 p.m. , with west and southwest winds reaching 40 to 50 mph — some higher gusts are possible, according to the National Weather Service.

Strong low pressure moving through the Midwest and a trailing cold front moving through the advisory area will cause strong wind gusts today.

A Wind Advisory means that winds of 35 mph or higher are expected, according to the National Weather Service, and winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Use extra caution. 

Winds are expected to diminish tonight.
