The area can expect winds to gust up to 45 MPH through the day Saturday.

A FIRE DANGER is also in effect due to the strong winds and dry conditions.

A Wind Advisory means that winds of 30 mph are expected. Winds
this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high
profile vehicles. Use extra caution.

The strong winds will effect the entire state of North Dakota, with stronger winds in the South, South-Central,  North and North-West. Strong winds will impact the eastern portion of the state, but not as gusty as the rest of the state.
