* Event...north to northwest winds at 15 to 25 mph are expected on Friday...with gusts to 30 mph in places.

* Areas affected...the lake Wind Advisory is in effect for much of Arkansas except the southwest. The freeze warning includes locations from Cave City...Clinton and Booneville northward.
* Impacts...strong winds Friday will create hazardous conditions on area bodies of water. Freezing conditions Friday night will kill plants and tender vegetation left outdoors without protection. Unprotected water pipes could freeze...especially if left without running a slow steady stream of liquid.
A freeze warning means subfreezing temperatures are expected. If these conditions occur...crops and other sensitive vegetation would be affected.
A lake Wind Advisory indicates that winds will cause rough chop on area lakes. Small boats will be especially prone to capsizing.
