IDAHO FALLS — A high wind warning is in effect for all of eastern Idaho until 4 p.m Monday.

Winds between 35 to 45 mph with gusts up to 60 mph can be expected most of the day, according to the National Weather Service. Winds will be strongest through 9 a.m.

Strong winds could cause damage to trees and powerlines which may result in power outages. Travel will be difficult, especially for high-profile vehicles, due to strong crosswinds along north-south routes.

Blowing dust is possible, especially along Interstate 86 between American Falls and Pocatello, Interstate 15 between Fort Hall and Blackfoot and Interstate 15 between Idaho Falls and Roberts.

The wind caused several schools in eastern Idaho to cancel classes Monday due to power outages.
