High Winds

A high-profile vehicle on a road during high winds and rain.

High winds reduce roadway capacity by obstructing lanes or roads with drifting snow and wind-blown debris, such as tree limbs. Wind-blown snow, dust and smoke can impact mobility by reducing visibility distance. High winds can also impact the stability of vehicles, particularly high-profile vehicles.
