Raging East Wind In The Gorge Tonight

November 26, 2012

Peak gust of 61 mph out in Corbett within the last couple hours as the wind starts to really ramp up this evening.  Gusts to 70 mph are possible through tomorrow morning out there as the air is squeezed down by the warming atmosphere overhead tonight; an inversion.  Then it’ll gradually back off, but still remain very windy, through Wednesday.  Adding to the wintry feel, this is the coldest airmass of the season coming through the Gorge so far with temps in the 30s along with the wind right now.
