Hi Gang,

We have already seen one strong east wind event this fall and that event had devastating consequences for the Eagle Creek fire causing it to sweep from Eagle Creek to almost to the outskirts of Corbett.

As you can see in Ben's forecast for today we are in for big east winds again today. And as Ben says we can only hope this event does not stir up the fire.


So where do these east winds come from and why are they so tightly focused from Home Valley to Rooster Rock while rest of the Gorge barely has any wind?

This animated blog will give you some answers:
