GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Windy weather might have made outdoor summer activities difficult this week, but the National Weather Service said it's not the windiest June we've ever seen.
"To have one of this intensity was just slightly unusual, we don't see it every year," said Jim Pringle, of the National Weather Service. "It's not all that uncommon."
The National Weather Service recorded 35-50 mph winds on the Western Slope and Eastern Utah Tuesday.
Around 4 p.m. that day, there was a peak wind gust of 55 miles per hour at the Grand Junction Regional Airport.
The June wind record stands at 66 mph in 1951 and 1991.
