...HIGH WIND WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH
FRIDAY AFTERNOON...

* LOCATION...all of the Southeast Colorado Plains, including
  Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Walsenburg, Trinidad, La Junta, Lamar
  and Springfield.

* CAUSE AND TIMING...a strong cold front will drop south across
  the Eastern Colorado Plains late Thursday night, and through
  the day on Friday.

* WIND...north at 35 to 45 mph with gusts in excess of 65 mph.

* IMPACT...these winds will pose a hazard to high profile
  vehicles, especially on east to west oriented roadways. Winds
  may also take down power lines and trees, knock out power,
  cause property damage, and reduced visibilities; due to snow
  over the Palmer Divide, and possibly dust across the Eastern
  Plains.

* Potential Fire Weather Impact...Although humidity values will be
  much higher on Friday, if power lines were to fall on any dry grass,
  then the potential will exist for a fast moving grass fire to
  occur.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A High Wind Watch means there is the potential for a hazardous
high wind event. Sustained winds of at least 40 mph, or gusts of
58 mph or stronger may occur. Continue to monitor the latest
forecasts.
