...ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...

In 2000, high winds developed over eastern Colorado and continued
for 48 hours. The winds began with a very strong frontal passage.
Initial gusts of 75 mph were reported with the front. The high winds
continued through the next day causing blowing dust across Yuma, Kit
Carson, and Cheyenne Counties. Visibilities were near zero in places
and made travel difficult until the winds and blowing dust subsided
later in the afternoon.
