... High Wind Warning in effect from midnight tonight to noon MST
Saturday...

The National Weather Service in Denver has issued a High Wind
Warning, which is in effect from midnight tonight to noon MST
Saturday. The high wind watch is no longer in effect.

* Winds... west 35 to 45 mph with gusts up to 75 mph.

* Timing... strong west winds will increase after midnight and
continue through Saturday morning, decreasing after noon.

* Impacts... the strong winds will create blowing snow, reducing
visibility to make driving hazardous in areas. Gusty winds will
blow around unsecured objects. Tree limbs could be blown down
and a few power outages may result. Travel will be difficult for
high profile vehicles.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
