Re Gusty Winds Southeast Arizona This Morning

Art Douglas reported this morning:


Well the wind is blowing so hard I can not sleep.  Some wind reports below with the NWS criteria for a wind advisory. The station names in quotation marks are a joke in my opinion as they are not even close the area indicated:  names are all flat landers and the sites are on top of ridges!  Yes, I know the name is given to reflect the closest geographical settlement.........but still..........quoting weather for Miracle Valley that is on top of a high ridge is a joke.    Art
