Bluff report: Hatchery/Swell - by Mike Godsey @ 10:30 AM: The sensor is reading 17g25 but the wind is very patchy and still just located in the Hatch and Swell area with no sign of stronger wind to the west. Lots of smoke and haze will probably delay the wind.
9:30 am, windfind:
Bluff report: Hatchery/Swell - by Mike Godsey @ 9:30 AM: The sensor is reading 17g22 which is about right with weaker winds than last report but otherwise conditions are the same.
8:00 am, windfind:
Bluff report: Hatchery/Swell - by Mike Godsey @ 8:15 AM: The sensor is reading 18g25 which is about right. However all he wind is focused in the Hatch and Swell max venturi zone with only light wind to the East and West. This typically means unreliable winds until the expected transfer of momentum from aloft develops as the Gorge heats up. So you might want to wait several hours.
