Wind advisory in effect on Lake Tahoe until Saturday morning
December 9, 2016
A wind advisory for Lake Tahoe will remain in effect until 1 a.m. Saturday.
The National Weather Service in Reno issued the advisory, warning that winds will increase throughout the day and into the evening.
Winds from the southwest will range 15-25 mph, with gusts as strong as 50 mph.
The strong winds may pose travel difficulties for vehicles and turbulence for aircraft.
Wave height may range from 2-4 feet, meaning boats, kayaks and paddle boards will be prone to capsizing and should remain off the lake until conditions improve, the National Weather Service advises.
