A dust storm and high wind warning is in effect for El Paso County from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, the National Weather Service in Pueblo said Monday night.

Driving visibility could be reduced for two reasons: In northern El Paso County, the potentially damaging winds could reach gusts of up to 65 mph and be coupled with snow. In southern and eastern El Paso County, dust might be the culprit that lowers visibility on roadways to less than a mile and results in dangerous driving conditions.

"Eastern parts of the county will receive the brunt of the wind and the blowing dust," said Kathy Torgerson, meterologist with the National Weather Service.
