Brief Summary Of Winds

Above graphic shows observations at Mt. Hopkins RAWS site from noon to midnight yesterday (columns from left to right: time, solar radiation, ave mph last hour, ave. direction, max gust last hour, and temp). Note that 3 hours had max gusts over 85 mph - my outlook in previous post ended up a bit low on the gust potential up there.

Here at house max gusts were around 50 mph and airport reached up to 40 mph. The winds at TUS were strongest for any of the ASOS, southeast Arizona stations listed on NWS web site.

Long-range models forecast a bit of a pattern change next week just before Thanksgiving - but of course that's a long time from now.
