Hi Gang,

New imagery below at 3:50PM

Check out today's Gorge forecast.

Strong Easterly and strong Westerly winds along the Columbia?

Since winds are largely driven by pressure gradients how can you have two different pressure gradients at the same time?

This blog tries to answer that question:

Last october, on a really hot day I had a 4.2 sesh at rooster and then went out to Jones for another 4.2 ride later in the day..The thing that sticks out in my mind (besides the opposite wind thang) was the temp was so much cooler and refreshing out west that day. 30f degrees cooler if I remember correctly.
