A wind advisory is in effect for Ottawa County until 11 p.m. today.

The National Weather Service says we’ll see occasional wind gusts over 45 mph into this evening.

Another round of showers and thunderstorms through 8 p.m. could easily produce very strong gusts. These gusts are possible even without any precipitation, especially along the lakeshore into the evening.

Impacts:

— Scattered power outages.

— Some tree damage.

— Difficult travel, especially near the lakeshore.

Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high-profile vehicles. Use extra caution.
