Those light winds turned mean and nasty as the cold front moved through. Winds went from light and variable to northwesterly gusting as high as 50 knots / 58 miles per hour. These winds created a dense dust storm through the Snake River Valley. You can see how dusty it became on the north side of Mountain Home. That fire station in the distance is only about 450 feet from the picture taking spot.
