September Temps + Winds

Posted: 15 Sep 2015 05:41 AM

Temperatures warmed very nicely into the 80s on Monday thanks to the strong southerly wind. The featured chart displays the frequency of having a 10+ knot wind speed at a given air temperature in September. With an increasing temperature there is an increasing chance that we strong winds as well. There is a good reason for this relationship as it takes strong winds to transport warm air into the state and also indicates that vertical mixing is taking place which brings warm air from above to the surface. Without these processes, it is very difficult to support very warm temperatures in September.

Good = 11
Bad = 8
Abstain = 2
