A wind advisory means that sustained winds of 25 miles an hour are expected with gusts as high as 40 miles an hour, according to the National Weather Service.

Winds this strong can make driving difficult. 

Lake Tahoe wave heights are expected to run two to four feet.

Operators of small craft that might be prone to capsizing are being urged to remain off the lake until the winds subside and conditions improve.

Winds are expected to die down by Wednesday morning.
