Windiest Day in 5 Months

October 3, 2012

Somehow a peak gust of 45 made it to the airport this morning at 10:10am.

That was the strongest wind gust at PDX since early May.  Today we saw the easterly wind widespread across the metro area too.  Gusts 35-40 mph were common even in Washington County.

More wind the next few days, although not as strong.  It’ll back off a bit tomorrow, then come back a little stronger Friday.
