Earlier reports from our KHQ Weather Authority Center:

Strong, gusty winds are the big weather story for Monday &  Tuesday. Winds are already blowing 20-30mph. A strong cold front will push through Monday with rainy & windy conditions during the morning hours. Behind the front, rain will end, skies will partially clear & winds will gust even stronger during the afternoon. SW winds will steadily blow 20-30mph with gusts up to 50-60mph. Winds of this strength can cause damage to trees & property, downed power lines and blowing dust. Blowing dust is most likely near any freshly plowed fields, over the Palouse & western plains and can reduce visibility quickly for drivers. Winds will begin to decrease after sunset (8pm). The HIGH WIND WARNING is posted for much of the area until 11pm
