Looks amazing - it is like the Appalachions make quite a barrier.

I doubt you gave "any" wind away --- just shared a little with Hobby, huh?

Re: Southwest...

That's a really neat map. Looks like the air is mostly coming out of Canada, swooping along the Rockies, and gets diminished at the Appalachians. I've always felt like the mtns to my west make for a safe haven here in the Shenandoah valley, but never seen actual proof of it like that.
Also, I've heard tell that there's evidence that once upon a time, the app mtns were greater than the Rockies. Maybe the wind helped to erode them over time.... I know there's some rough country in there, and some pretty rough folk too!

Re: Southwest...

Air flow should be light in weight ------ at least I think.  

 

I have always been amazed at how the wind accelerates coming downhill out of the Rockies.

 

That map really shows it.  

 

Thanks

Re: Southwest...

That sounds like March in Sw ks.  

 

Odd part for us is the air mass behind the nw wind is not cold------ kind of odd.

 

We had severe cold early ,  maybe we are headed for an early spring.

Re: Southwest...

Dust blowing in Jan. is that very common in KS?  We have had very little moisture this Winter here.

That could change very fast come Spring.  Wind event just starting, geese going to find it tuff flying north today.
