Watches & Warnings

High Wind Warning
Issued: 3:54 AM MDT Mar. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High Wind Warning remains in effect until 5 PM MDT this
afternoon...

* location... Huerfano, Las Animas, Otero, Kiowa, bent, Prowers
and Baca counties, including Walsenburg, Trinidad, La Junta,
Lamar and Springfield.

* Cause and timing... an intense area of low pressure over
southeast Colorado will move into Kansas by mid morning. This
will cause strong north winds over the southeast Colorado plains
through this afternoon.

* 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 today, 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.
