OKLAHOMA CITY – If you are finding it a little difficult to see outside right now, it could be from the dust that has filled the air.

Strong winds are sweeping across Oklahoma City, stirring up dirt that is now causing hazy conditions throughout the metro.

Experts say this is not a thick dust storm, but it is providing a little bit of limited visibility.

In Boise City, drivers reported seeing semis parked along the roadway because of the haze.

In fact, visibility was so low the Colorado State Patrol closed Hwy 287 northbound out of Boise City.

However, the roadway is back open at this time.
