Hi Gang,

Remember the recent blog titled " Cut-Off Lows, a weatherman's woe"?

Meteorologist often hate Cut-Off Lows since they are very unpredictable and are notorious for messing up forecasts. But don't get the idea that they are always a sailors woe.

As you can see in these 3 videos at the link below we are on the verge of big winds Tuesday and Wednesday

http://blog.weatherflow.com/cut-off-low-slides-down-the-california-coast-so/


The new Cut-Off Low you see in the video link hitting California should help steer powerful winds over the Gorge as an upper trough comes over us. This:

a. enhances surface low pressure in the Columbia Basin.

b. Shoves the heat producing & gradient spoiling upper high eastward

c. Nudges the North Pacific High closer to the coast,

d. Increases the marine layer intrusion and

e. Adds a major gust factor as the strong upper winds transfer momentum to the surface winds.

To see the videos and the BIG WINDS go to this blog:

But remember.... this forecast all hinges on an unpredictable Cut-Off Low behaving!!!
