Damaging, Dangerous Winds are forecast for Labor Day. Wind Speeds of 30 to 40 mph and gusts exceeding 55 mph are expected to come surging down from the North between 3 pm and Midnight. Winds at this speed can cause damage to homes and property, down trees and power lines and create dangerous travel conditions. 🍃 🌲 🔌

📢 We need to emphasize this is not a typical windy day in Idaho – this is a very strong back-door cold front – bringing in a surge of cold Canadian northerly air. Winds from a strong northerly direction in September are exceedingly a-typical.

To protect from property damage from these strong winds, secure or bring inside objects that could blow around, such as lawn furniture. Fix loose shutters or other items on your home that could be blown off and trim trees or bushes that are near the structure. Ensure your emergency supplies kit is up-to-date so that you are prepared in the event of a power outage. Visit weather.gov/wind for more wind safety information. If you are planning on driving, high-profile automobiles, RVs, and trucks need to exercise extreme caution or postpone their trip. 🚗

High Wind Warnings and Wind Advisories are in effect for much of Southeast Idaho.

In addition to the wind, snow showers are expected to accompany the bitterly cold temperature change.
