Gust to 52 mph in the past hour at Eugene and 47 mph at Salem. Corvallis hit 48 mph. Upper level winds are also beginning to surface in some spots that don’t normally get strong wind along the Cascade foothills. I’m surprised to see within the past half hour Scotts Mills (relatively protected location) hit 46 mph and a 48 mph up the hill from Estacada on the way to Colton.
Note the high-tech wind gust tracking sheet.
Coastal winds (so far) have been much lower than I expected. I see a 72 on the Yaquina Bay Bridge otherwise just a standard coastal windstorm so far…
Low pressure center is due west of Tillamook and tracking north.
Real strong wind in central/northeast Oregon too. The Bend/Redmond area saw widespread gusts in the 50-65 mph range and Joseph (NE) hit 75 mph about an hour ago. 66 mph gusts at Shaniko and Lexington too. Looks like everyone is getting in on the action!
