WILMINGTON, Ohio (AP) - Forecasters are warning Christmas travelers of high winds expected to sweep across Ohio just as many people catch flights and hit the road for holiday festivities.

All of the state is under wind-related advisories from the National Weather Service starting Wednesday and continuing into Thursday. The exact times vary in different regions.

A high wind warning has been issued from Wednesday evening to Thursday morning for much of northern Ohio, stretching from the Toledo area south past Mansfield and then as far northeast as Ashtabula. The weather service says a cold front will follow a low pressure system moving into the region, bringing rain and winds of up to 35 mph with gusts as high as 60 mph.

Forecasters say such winds could make travel especially dangerous for large vehicles.
