Watches & Warnings

High Wind Warning
Issued: 3:47 PM MDT Mar. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... 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.

* Winds... southwest 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.

* Relative humidity... 5 to 10 percent.

* Impacts... conditions will be favorable for the rapid ignition,
growth and spread of fires.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are expected. Strong winds, low relative humidity, and dry fuels
will result in the potential for extreme fire behavior. Burning
or any other activities that could accidentally spark a wildfire
should be postponed.
