West Coast Wind Blog: Front passes and southerly winds turn westerly an ROAR!

by Mike Godsey

ROUGH DRAFT text later today

Southern California and San Francisco Bay Area kiters and windsurfers know the drill. A storm passes then the North Pacific High move towards the coast and its NW winds curve into the beaches. Today we see a pattern that is more common on the east coast with prefrontal southerly winds turning into westerly post frontal westerly winds. These images tell the story pretty well by themselves but I will add more animations and text later today.
