From the KAKEland Weatherplex, Meteorologist Blake Smith answers tonight's question.

"Two words for you, Rocky Mountains. When we have storm systems interact with the mountains. we tend to see a little low pressure system develop on the east side. We are close enough that we always feel the effects of that. That's why the winds are always so strong."
