national weather service billings mt
1143 am mdt mon mar 26 2012

.a sequence of weather events will generate a strong surge of wind
through the region. High based showers and thunderstorms will
develop along a cold front over the mountains and foothills this
afternoon. This will strengthen the cold front which will generate
additional thunderstorm activity as it moves through south central
montana. Wind gusts of 60 mph will be common across most of
south central and western portions of southeast montana and
sheridan county wyoming late this afternoon and evening. As the
front moves through southeast montana tonight it will encounter a
developing storm system over the dakotas which will strengthen the
winds behind the front. Very strong winds are expected over
southeast montana overnight and into early tuesday.

...high wind warning in effect from 4 pm this afternoon to
midnight mdt tonight...

The national weather service in billings has issued a high wind
warning...which is in effect from 4 pm this afternoon to midnight
mdt tonight.

* timing...by 4 pm thunderstorms will move off the mountains and
begin producing gusty winds in areas like columbus and
harlowton. Billings will see this activity around 5 pm.
Roundup...hardin and sheridan around 6 pm. Gusty west winds
will continue for a few hours behind the front.

* impacts...a strong and sudden wind shift is expected along the
front. This could cause property damage especially for
construction in progress. Blowing dust from freshly plowed
fields could cause limited visibilities.

* winds...wind gusts from the west of 40 to 60 mph should be
expected. Even stronger gusts could be possible near
thunderstorms. Strong west winds of 30 to 40 mph will persist
for a few hours behind the front.

* lightning...thunderstorms that develop this afternoon will be
active lightning producers so people engaging in outdoor
activities will need monitor the skies.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Winds of these magnitudes can cause property damage without extra
precautions. Motorists in high profile vehicles should use
caution until the winds subside.

Default March 2012

The data has all been put together and although this is for the entire US, I thought you'd like to know that we had the driest March on record in the last 124 years. I hope this is not what the rest of the year will be.
