High Winds Created Dangerous Travel Conditions on I-25 Monday
Blustery winds created some travel headaches for high profile vehicles on Interstate 25 in southern Wyoming and northern Colorado on Monday. There were several reports of downed tractor-trailers and the Colorado Department of Transportation actually closed down I-25 in both directions between Wellington and the Wyoming state line.
Take a look at some of these wind reports over the past 24 hours. Cheyenne has a max wind report of 62 mph!
Peak wind gusts over the last 12 hours. Some of the strongest gusts have been reported in the last 30 minutes. High Wind Warnings remain in effect along and west of the Interstate 25 corridor. #wywx #wyoroad pic.twitter.com/vtCdG1eoFf

Downed High Profile Vehicles
These photos show just how dangerous strong winds can be to high profile vehicles and the was the reason the National Weather Service had issued wind advisories and high wind warnings for the region. The winds speeds will be slowing down for Monday evening and that should help to eliminate the threat of danger for high profile vehicles.
