Strong westerly winds behind a departing storm system will likely create some challenges for you today. Sustained winds at 20 to 40mph with gusts to 50mph can be expected through sunset. Winds this strong will make for dangerous crosswinds along north-south oriented roadways, especially I-25 and HWY 83. Please exercise extra caution if operating a high-profile vehicle today.
The combination of gusty winds, mild temps, and dry conditions will also lead to HIGH FIRE DANGER today. You are advised to postpone any outdoor activities with potentially flammable items.
Winds will diminish during the early evening hours.
