The wind warning just went into effect geez the one time we don't bust low on a wind event. 

When we get effective sunshine during these high wind events it makes the process of mixing down the winds aloft very efficient. Going to be interesting to see what later this afternoon looks like.

I believe it.  That's right near me, and the winds have already been strong this morning.  I'd guess the peak gusts were close to 40.  Hoping the power stays on...

we've had one flicker so far, which made my heart skip a beat. working from home and power issues make me nervous. finding myself constantly saving my work today

The rattle of something flapping on the roof at work tells me the winds are def picking up.  Reminds me of the winds during Sandy.

yeah i can usually gauge how strong the wind is by how far the chairs on the deck slide around.

Velocity scans look pretty impressive on that radar activity coming over the mountains now. We will start to battle less mixing from the sun going down - but my guess is there's a good surge of wind damage with that precip.

LLLRs are currently around 9.5C/km in the region per SPC mesoscale analysis.
