Severe Risks

Wind advisories and high wind warnings are in effect for Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and Arizona.  Winds this strong could lead to downed trees, limbs and even power outages.  Anyone traveling in high profile vehicles will need to take extra caution on the roads, especially for the first half of the day.
