Hi Gang,

With the winds just aloft shifting from WNW to WSW the 30 knot surface WSW winds were often too variable to create the consistent all day huge glassy swell of Wall lore. This made photography slooooow. But at times the swell was perfect which made for a bit of hot action!

Here are more photos:

Hi Gang,

We have added a Public Domain sensor located on the John Day River Bridge well east of the dam. It will read LOW compared to the actual wind at Rufus but by looking at the wind at The Wall sensor and this sensor you will have a good idea of how windy it is at Rufus.

It also gives you another way to interpreting the often incorrect readings at the Maryhill and The Wall sensors. If there is a hint of WNW on the new John Day sensor the Maryhill and The Wall sensors will show strong winds that are mostly on the OR side of the river.

If the John Day sensor shows hints of WSW winds the Wall will rock and the sensors will be accurate.

Below is a graphic that shows what is happening. Go here for a full size image: https://blog.weatherflow.com/west-coast-wind-blog-using-sensors-in-the-wall-to-rufus-corridor/
