The Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service says winds of over 70 miles per hour could impact travelers in southeast Wyoming today.

The agency posted this statement on its website:

''Greetings! A windy day in store for Monday with High Wind Warnings and Watches in effect across southeast Wyoming. Strong winds expected to develop near Arlington on I-80 and Bordeaux on I-25 early Monday morning.
