Total bust here. About 10 minutes of gusty conditions and a 2 minute downpour. Overall, quite a calm day. Took in the Portland Japanese Garden this morning without so much as a breeze or a drop of rain. Absolutely gorgeous there. Past peak though.

But what about the Daffodils and cherry blossoms?

The NWS did name a storm several years ago before it came ashore, at least in their AFD. It completely busted so I'm pretty sure they learned their lesson. It was the "Ides of October" storm that never happened.

Lol that thing was predicted to be a Columbus Day tier storm. Still gusted to 50ish at PDX so it wasn’t a total bust, but definitely overhyped

That's the key discrepancy I think-- it was NEVER forecast to be anything close to the Columbus Day Storm. Maybe to Hanukkah Eve or 12/12/1995, but NWS Portland was forecasting 60-70 mph gusts in the Valley, with a reasonable expectation for gusts close to a hundred on the coast. Only similarity it had with CDS was its genesis as the resurrection of some typhoon remnants.

Squall line impacted Springfield for a few moments. Was just rain and no wind. Aside from that, it’s been very boring.

EUG is showing gusts to 35. Not impressive, but enough to drop a few leaves.

Most active mid-Fall weather since 2016. Not quite as wet as that October but getting there!

2016 is one of the La Nina years that CA had a significant AR event.  I like where this is pointing.

No doubt.  We have had a few really legit gusts here.  Too bad my anemometer is semi blocked from this direction.

We fell just short of velocities that could have really caused problems here.  Down to 50 and still dropping.

Not one rumble this entire year.  I don't think I've ever seen that before.  Nov can be an ok month for that here so it could still happen.

The Fall can sneak up on you. I remember 2009 doing that, of course the best storms were in June but I had like 5-6 days it thundered at Landmark Apartments in Oct/Nov.

Gust to 51 at Boeing Field.  I guess I have to call this a real storm now.  The squalls saved the day in that regard.

Nearby station showed 35 here but I think the gusts with that squall must’ve been higher than that. Was a pretty decent squall. Looks like the funs wrapped up for the day Suns coming out.
