The winds were really blowing Sunday night. Mark Thibodeau with the Weather Channel says it was hard not to notice them. “The winds were gusting, in many places, over 50 mph; in some places over 60 mph. We’ve got basically an upper level jet core. These jet stream winds we’re looking at settles right into the area. And we had a mechanism that tapped those winds and brought them down to the surface, in a lot of spots. And as a result, we had the gusty winds in play last night.” Central Oregon is under a wind advisory until 7 p.m. tonight.
Winds could be between 25 and 35 miles an hour through the afternoon with gusts over 40 miles an hour.
