... High wind watch in effect from late tonight through Monday
evening...

The National Weather Service in Denver has issued a high wind
watch, which is in effect from late tonight through Monday
evening.

* Winds... west 30 to 50 mph with gusts up to 90 mph possible. The
wind will be strongest late Monday morning and afternoon.

* Timing... late tonight through Monday 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.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high wind watch means there is the potential for a hazardous
high wind event. Strong winds may lead to property damage.
Hazardous driving conditions due to powerful cross winds will be
possible for drivers, especially for light weight and
high profile vehicles. Loose outdoor items should be brought
inside or secured properly. Continue to monitor the latest
forecasts.
