* WINDS...West 35 to 45 mph with gusts up to 85 mph. The strongest
winds will occur through this evening.

* TIMING...through 10 pm MST this evening.

* IMPACTS...Areas of blowing snow restricting visibility,
especially at higher elevations. High profile vehicles will be
susceptible to dangerous cross winds. Possible power outages
caused by downed power lines. Fire danger will be high in the
foothills so no open burning today.


A High Wind Warning means a hazardous high wind event is expected
or occurring. Strong winds may lead to property damage. Hazardous
driving conditions due to powerful cross winds will pose a
serious risk for drivers, especially for light weight and high
profile vehicles. Loose outdoor items should be brought inside or
secured properly.
