inches for the lower elevations along the I-25 corridor.

High Wind Warning

Statement as of 3:47 PM MDT on March 23, 2017

Expires 7:00 PM EDT on March 24, 2017


... High Wind Warning in effect from 3 am to 5 PM MDT Friday...

The National Weather Service in Pueblo has issued a High Wind
Warning, which is in effect from 3 am to 5 PM MDT Friday. This
upgrades and replaces the high wind watch that was in effect.

* Location... all of the southeast Colorado plains, including
Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Walsenburg, Trinidad, La Junta,
Lamar and Springfield.

* Cause and timing... a strong cold front will drop south across
the eastern Colorado plains tonight through Friday.

* Wind... north 35 to 45 gusting over 65 mph.

* Impact... these winds will pose a hazard to high profile
vehicles, especially on east to west oriented roadways. Winds
may also take down power lines and trees, knock out power,
cause property damage, and reduced visibilities; due to snow
over the Palmer Divide, and possibly dust across the eastern
plains.

* Potential fire weather impact... although humidity values will
be much higher on Friday, if power lines were to fall on any
dry grass, then the potential will exist for a fast moving
grass fire to occur.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A High Wind Warning means a hazardous high wind event is expected
or occurring. Sustained wind speeds of at least 40 mph or gusts
of 58 mph or more can lead to property damage.
