Driving on a windy day can be dangerous, just like rain or snow. Drivers should use caution on the roads and remember to slow down. Here are a few things to keep in mind on a windy day:
All vehicles should be prepared for the wind gusts to cause sudden movements of your car, but high profile vehicles like trucks, semi-trucks and SUVS are more likely to feel the impact of the wind.
Remember to always leave plenty of space between you and semi-trucks or SUVs.
In addition, if it is raining or snowing, that will add another layer of difficulty on the roads. Wind may blow snow around even more, either helping to produce white out conditions or keeping the roads coated because of blowing a drifting.
When it is raining and very windy, the wind could help produce reduced visibility on the roads. Heavy rain will also open the possibility of hydroplaning. When it is windy and your car is already losing traction because of the rain, it can also cause you to swerve.

— The chance for rain will be around for the start of the weekend. That means those heading to the Vectren Dayton Air Show will need to be prepared, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar.
We're also keeping an eye on the heat at times this weekend.
Saturday: The chance for a few storms will be in the forecast, especially for the first part of the day. Conditions are expected to improve through the day. Highs will be in the upper 70s.
Sunday: It will be a mainly dry day, but a stray shower or storm can’t be completely ruled out. Sunday will be a touch warmer as we see highs in the lower 80s. However, with a lot of concrete at the Dayton International Airport, surface temperatures will be closer to the mid to upper-80s.
Air show leaders said those coming to the air show this weekend they’ll need to stay hydrated, adding there’s little shade at the airport to protect you from the sun.
There will be fountains for free water. If anyone does start to feel ill, they should go to one of the EMS tents or to one of the paramedics that will on bicycles.
