Weather Blog - Saturday morning storm bringing high winds

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

This storm has not disappointed along the coast...note the peak wind gusts as of 8am.  Many of these just occurred so we might see a few go a bit higher.  I see the HTC Relay folks moved the finish line off the beach as tents/equipment started moving around:

  • Astoria 45
  • Cannon Beach 60
  • Garibaldi 61
  • Pacific City 65
  • Lincoln City 52
  • Gleneden Beach 53
  • Newport 58
  • Yachats 56

Inland, where we have been expecting wind gusts 35-45 mph, wind is just getting going.

  • Forest Grove 31
  • Aurora 32
  • Salem 35
  • Happy Valley 33
  • Chehalem Mtn 48

Those are strong wind gusts for August!

Check out the satellite image from earlier this morning, a heck of surface low:

10205891834912468

and the Ocean Shores radar shows the low moving quickly up the coastline.  Appears to already be west of Long Beach.

I have to admit, I like having a wind event (or storm) with some sunshine and temperatures in the 70s.  You can clean up the yard in shorts and t-shirt afterwards!
