The agency posted this statement on its website:

”Wind gusts will pick up again starting this morning for our western forecast areas in the higher terrain, and then spread further to the east much later on this evening for the Summit/Cheyenne/Chugwater area. The High Wind Watch has been upgraded to a High Wind Warning for the Arlington/Elk Mountain area, and from Cheyenne to Laramie along I-80. A High Wind Watch remains in effect for the Wheatland/Bordeaux area of southeast Wyoming. Sustained west winds of 35 to 45 MPH and gusts to 65-70MPH are possible. These strong winds will result in dangerous travel conditions and extreme blow over risk for light weight and high profile vehicles, including camping and travel trailers. Use extreme caution!”
