HIGH WIND WARNING FOR AREAS IN AND NEAR THE FRONT RANGE FOOTHILLS LATE TONIGHT AND SATURDAY

According to the National Weather Service, winds with gusts as high as 75 to 100 mph will arrive in Northern Colorado after midnight tonight. The high winds will continue through 6 p.m. Saturday.

We should start seeing some wind this afternoon with the worst of it starting after midnight tonight. The NOAA expects the strongest gusts to be in western Boulder County and western Larimer County.

PEOPLE PLANNING TRAVEL SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR STRONG CROSS WINDS CAUSING HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS. DRIVERS OF LIGHT WEIGHT OR HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES SHOULD CONSIDER DELAYING TRAVEL OR USE ALTERNATE ROUTES. IF YOU ARE DRIVING ON THE ROADWAYS SLOW DOWN AND REMAIN ALERT FOR SUDDEN AND STRONG WIND GUSTS.

Some of the highways affected include HWY 36 between Broomfield and Estes Park. HWY 287 between Lafayette and the Wyoming border, as well as the Carter Lake and Horsetooth Reservoir areas.

Below the foothills the winds will be less severe but we can still expect gusts of 20-50MPH in cities like Fort Collins, Greeley, Windsor and Loveland.
