Watches & Warnings

High Wind Watch
Issued: 3:55 AM MDT Mar. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High wind watch remains in effect from late tonight through
Friday afternoon...

* 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 late Thursday night, and through
the day on Friday.

* Wind... north at 35 to 45 mph with gusts in excess of 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 watch means there is the potential for a hazardous
high wind event. Sustained winds of at least 40 mph, or gusts of
58 mph or stronger may occur. Continue to monitor the latest
forecasts.
