For Those Who Watched PBS's "Mr. Tornado"...

Microbursts are forecast across eastern Utah and Colorado today (within blue areas).

The watches forecast wind gusts of 80 mph. There has already been a warning in Utah for 90 mph winds. 

The winds will be caused by the downbursts or microbursts (a downburst smaller than 2.5 miles in diameter). If you watched Mr. Tornado on PBS last week, this is the type of storm Dr. Fujita discovered. 

Please be especially careful near or in thunderstorms in this region. "If thunder roars, go indoors."
