For those east wind fans, freaks, and fanatics, you're going to love this!
Tuesday afternoon east wind develops. By Tuesday night it becomes strong and overnight into early Wednesday morning it is absolutely raging.
Check out those tightly packed isobars! The PDX/TTD-DLS gradient looks to be around -10mb to -12mb. That's impressive. This is probably the beginning of a long duration east wind event.
The 12km Sounding observed over PDX shows an impressive 50-55kts aloft. That's pretty decent. This will be the first east wind event of the Fall season
