The National Weather Service in Riverton has issued a High Wind Watch between Lander and the Casper area from 2:00 Tuesday morning to 8:00 Tuesday evening.

NWS meteorologists say southwest winds will increase to 25 to 45 m.p.h early Tuesday morning and continue through early Tuesday evening, with the potential for 55 to 65 m.p.h. wind gusts during this period.

Travelers between Lander, Muddy Gap and Casper may encounter strong and erratic wind gusts and patchy areas of blowing snow. Sudden, strong cross winds could enhance the blow-over risk for light weight and high profile vehicles.
