The advisory said to expect south to southwest winds at 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph. The National Weather Service said it usually issues an advisory when sustained winds are forecast to be 30 to 39 mph or if gusts will range between 45 to 57 mph.

The windy conditions can cause minor property damage and difficulty driving for high profile vehicles, the National Weather Service warned.
