No Sunshine Today

October 19, 2011

A huge change the last 6 hours…


24 hours ago it was gusting over 70 mph at Vista House in the Gorge with easterly wind; now it’s light westerly.  We’ve had a massive push of ocean air inland since midnight, triggered by a passing upper-level trough.  Suddenly we have a 4,000′ deep marine layer in late October.  It should go without saying that we probably won’t see any sun today and high temps will be 15 degrees cooler.  But hey, at least no wind?
