Wind Over My Station744 viewsTaken 1/23/06
Strong winds buffeted Southern California last night and this morning causing wide spread damage. Fallen trees, downed power lines, etc. Sustained winds at my station were 30 mph with gusts as high as 42 mph. Combined with extremely low humidity, these conditions have prompted a Red Flag Fire Alert. Here, the wind is bending over the tree in my front yard with my Weather Station s Anemometer and Rain Bucket in the foreground.
