    Strong NW wind gusts expected through the day, picking up around
    15z as they switch from the south/southwest. Winds will generally
    reside in the 20 to 30 kt range, but occasional gusts approaching
    35+ kts will be possible. Overnight winds should generally
    decrease, but with strong low level winds just off the surface
    expect 20+ kt gusts to persist through the overnight hours. Low
    level wind shear should not be a problem considering surface winds
    remaining in the 10-20 kt range, but winds just off the surface
    will likely be in the 40 to 50 kt range, so lighter winds at the
    surface will result in increasing LLWS concerns overnight tonight.
