A Wind Advisory remains in effect for the KRMS Listening area until this evening.
Officials with the National Weather Service say sustained winds of 20 to 30 miles an hour remains possible, with gusts as high as 50 miles an hour.
That means conditions are not favorable for burning and several fire departments have already issued no burn warnings across the region.
In addition, officials with MODOT advise motorists who are traveling in high profile vehicles, such as Semi-Trucks and RVs to be cautious for the strong wind gusts, specifically when crossing bridges.
