Just when I was starting to worry about when and if the usual November weather would arrive, Mother Nature comes through. Boy Oh Boy has she come through. Since early this morning wind gusts on the coast have been hitting 60 plus miles an hour. Peak gusts from this storm have topped 80mph!
A high wind warning will stay posted for the Oregon Coast until 1pm. Portland & The Willamette Valley will be under a Wind advisory until 4pm. A wind advisory means gusts could be between 35 to 50mph.
As the area of low pressure continues the track north the pressure gradient will ease. ( non-weather geek speak translation, the winds will die down)
After the cold front moves by late today snow levels in the mountains will come down. 4000 foot snow levels will remain across the region most of the week. Several inches of new snow are forecasted through the week.
