... Central High plains forecast offices reevaluate wind hazard
thresholds...

Effective October 31, 2014 at 600 PM MDT, the National Weather
Service forecast offices in Dodge City and Goodland, Kansas and
Hastings and North Platte, Nebraska will cease issuing wind
advisories. Wind advisories are normally issued when winds are
expected to reach 30 to 39 mph sustained, or wind gusts of 45 to 57
mph.

The Central High plains National Weather Service forecast offices
solicited input from users in a public online survey from April 28th
to July 29th to evaluate the impacts of winds meeting advisory
criteria. Input gained from users revealed that few take action to
mitigate the effect of such winds since they are so common on the
High Plains. Advisories are issued to draw attention to
meteorological events in the current forecast that could pose a
threat to safety or have an economic impact, and user input showed
that wind advisories do not meet this Standard on the Central High
plains.

High wind warnings will continue to be issued for sustained winds 40
mph or higher and wind gusts 58 mph or higher. Blowing dust
advisories (visibility below one mile in blowing dirt) and dust
storm warnings (visibility below 1/4 mile in blowing dirt) will also
continue to be issued.

Forecasts of wind speed and wind gusts for the next seven days are
available in both graphical and text format online at
www.Weather.Gov/gld and over all hazards NOAA Weather Radio.
Hazardous weather in the tri-state area is also highlighted on our
web site in the hazardous weather outlook, issued daily.
