A High Wind Watch has been issued for Petroleum and Garfield Counties as well as Central and Southern Phillips County, including the Little Rocky Mountains. Expect west to northwest winds sustained at 30 to 40 mph with gusts as high as 60 mph. This will cause strong crosswinds on north/south highways such as US Highway 191. Use caution if you’re driving any high profile vehicles.
A light wintry mix will likely spread across the area behind a cold front Saturday night. Rain is favored to start, transitioning to mostly snow by Sunday morning. With colder air and road temperatures along and north of US-2, there is medium confidence for a glaze of ice forming.
