The National Weather Service in Memphis has issued a Wind Advisory for most of north Mississippi including Oxford and Lafayette County, which is in effect from noon Saturday to 3 a.m. Sunday.

Winds are expected to be 15 to 30 mph during the day with possible gusts up to 40-45 mph later Saturday night.

Loose outdoor items will be vulnerable to the strong winds. Travel may be difficult and hazardous, especially on east to west roadways and for high profile vehicles.

Temperatures are also expected to drop drastically through the day Saturday as the cold front makes its way through the state. The temperature is expected to rise to near 60 degrees by 10 a.m, then fall to around 48 degrees during the remainder of the day.

Rain and possible thunderstorms are expected to continue throughout the day Saturday until about 9 p.m. when the temperatures will drop below 30 degrees with a chance of snow between 9 p.m. and midnight. Wind gusts could be as high as 40 mph.
