High canyon winds blew into Davis County Tuesday morning and were expected to continue through Wednesday morning, according to Bill Alder of the National Weather Service.
A wind gauge at Centerville recorded 47 mph gusts and another at Hill Air Force Base recorded 31 mph winds. The winds brought with it dust and debris as a result of dry summer conditions, Alder said."A high pressure over Wyoming and Montana is enhancing the canyon winds," said Alder. The winds were expected to last into mid-morning Tuesday and then start up again Tuesday night.
Besides bringing the winds, the high pressure system would mean lower temperatures to Wasatch Front communities. Highs should be in the 80s.
"It will take a little sizzle out of summer," Alder said.
