Hi Gang,

Many times each year after a strong wind period the Bay Area and Southern California forecasts will talk about the North Pacific High being crushed against the coast by a storm and then the winds fading as the NPH departs our waters. And often this means great but windless weather in the Gorge. (Should have said windless in the East and Corridor since high pressure inland means strong E. winds for Rooster.)

It is hard for words to capture these events so I have made an animation with text to try to help you visualize all this jargon.

This animation covers the time span from dawn today until Sunday afternoon. Be sure to watch the time base at the bottom and the wind streaks.
