URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Great Falls MT
300 AM MDT Wed May 24 2017

...High Winds expected through late Wednesday evening...

.A deep low pressure system moving east across Southwest Canada
will spread strong and gusty west winds from the Rocky Mountain
Front across the remainder of North Central Montana this morning.
Winds will continue through late Wednesday evening, then shift to
the northwest and decrease somewhat overnight. Strong winds this
late in the spring could cause more extensive impacts, as leaves
on trees could make limb damage and power outages somewhat more
likely. In addition, travelers pulling trailers will face
difficult driving conditions in strong cross winds.
