Sunday Morning Wind

April 7, 2013

We didn’t get damaging wind, but unusually windy early this morning across the region as a surface low pressure made landfall along the Long Beach Peninsula.  Peak gusts inland were generally in the 35-45 mph range, but in April that’s enough to bring down trees (and my basketball hoop).  And dozens of power outages still as of 8:30am as well, including here at home.  Looks like the farther north forecast by some models did a better job, although I didn’t see any weather info since yesterday morning so maybe they had forecast the low a bit better yesterday evening?  Not sure. 

On to showers again today…enjoy the rain.
