Strong Winds Expected Next Week

January 10, 2014, 6:13 PM by Brian Karstens

Strong Winds Expected Next Week

Whether it's warmer or colder, one constant in KELOLAND is the wind. 

The warmer temperatures in the forecast reflect a significant change to our weather.  But that change comes at a price.  While there's rarely a shortage of wind in KELOLAND, this particular pattern could feature some particularly strong northwest winds.

Colder air has retreated into Canada, allowing a stream of Pacific air to ride into KELOLAND.  This is a classic set-up for periods of stronger winds as a series of clipper systems move across southern Canada.  These clippers tend to ride along the tightest contrast of temperature between the bitterly cold arctic air to the north and the relatively warmer air to the south.

Each passing system will crank up the wind, which could top 50 miles per hour next week.  The first period to watch will be Monday night into Tuesday, and a second batch of wind could arrive late Wednesday into Thursday. 

This fast-paced pattern will keep any cold spells relatively short and may even contribute to more melting during the warmer peaks on the temperature.
