Interstate 10 Likely To Be Dusty, Windy Today

Posted By on Fri, Nov 4, 2011 at 10:30 AM

A wind advisory isn't usually something that constitutes an update on such a high-brow blog compilation as The Range, but considering how dangerous Interstate 10 has become because of dust storms, it bears mentioning today.

That being said, the National Weather Service has warned of high winds, sustained between 25 and 35 mph and gusting to more than 50 mph, in the Tucson area from 11 a.m. today until early Saturday morning.

Such winds can easily lead to blowing dust, especially along I-10, where numerous dust- and wind-fueled wrecks have led to major wrecks, injuries and deaths this year.
