03 September 2015 – PNW Migration Update

OK this is more better.

With the winds shifting on the shoulder of a weak high pressure system, a bit of the pent up migration urges were released last night. We had a fairly heavy passing last night — even a tiny touch up into the 30 dBZ zone (yellow).  Nothing like Duluth a couple of days ago, but still pretty solid.

For today’s moment of zen we have Cameron’s Winds of the Earth,  the loop from our local RTX station, and a static shot of the National Composite archived over on Paul’s website.

I pulled back on the WOTE snap shot so we can see the line of typhoons out in the Pacific.  Anytime you see red in the Wind Power Density plot, just hope it’s not headed for you.
