* Winds...Southwest winds 15 to 25 mph with local gusts to 40

use caution while driving. Check the latest road reports before

flashlight, food and water, extra clothes and blankets, and tire
chains. Anyone planning outdoor activities in the mountains this
weekend should be prepared for rapidly cooling temperatures and
snow showers.
