Statement as of 5:30 am MDT on April 21, 2014
... Strong gusty winds Tuesday afternoon and evening...
Strong southwest winds will become widespread over eastern Utah
and western Colorado Tuesday afternoon and continue into the
evening. Wind gusts 35 to 45 mph are likely... with some higher
gusts possible from nearby showers or thunderstorms.
The strongest winds are expected across eastern Utah late in the
afternoon. At times blowing dust may limit visibility... and may
deposit a layer of dust on the snowpack.
Anyone planning agricultural burning and land use agencies
planning prescribed burning should continue to monitor the
forecast. These strong winds will make fire control difficult.
