Title: Marshall Fire windstorm observations
Post by: hofpwx on January 05, 2022, 09:49:30 PM
The extremely gusty and high winds that made the Marshall Fire unfightable were reported to have gusts over 110 mph in places; in my backyard, I saw a gust of 49 mph.


My station is poorly sited for wind but a better-placed anemometer would be a maintenance nightmare, so I'll live with the observations I get.


The other two lines are the roof-mounted stations at the NCAR Mesa Lab (near to me) and the NCAR Foothills Lab (closer in elevation).
