Precautionary/preparedness actions... 

A Wind Advisory means that winds of 20 mph with gusts to 35 mph are 
expected. Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially 
for high profile vehicles. Use extra caution.

A freeze warning means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or
highly likely. These conditions will kill crops and other sensitive
vegetation.
