Strong wind blasts Wyoming again on Feb 25th

 

Strong wind occurred over the Cowboy State on Saturday.  A storm system intensified over the state as it moved across Northern Wyoming and strong wind speeds occurred as a result.  In addition, a cold front also moved across the state and this also helped increase the wind speeds.  Below are the peak wind gusts at selected wind sensors across Western and Central Wyoming.
