...STRONG WINDS ALONG THE COAST ON SUNDAY LATER AFTERNOON AND EVENING...
...VERY STRONG AND LOCALLY DAMAGING WINDS POSSIBLE ALONG THE COAST
MONDAY...
...WINDY CONDITIONS INLAND ON MONDAY...
A SERIES OF STRONG FRONTS WILL BRING INCREASINGLY WINDY WEATHER
TO THE REGION...BEGINNING SUNDAY. THE FIRST FRONT IS EXPECTED TO
BRING LOCALLY WINDY CONDITIONS TO THE COAST...WITH THE COASTAL
HEADLANDS FAVORED FOR THE STRONGEST WINDS. CONFIDENCE IS NOT HIGH
ENOUGH WITH THIS FIRST FRONT FOR WIDESPREAD HIGH WINDS...BUT THE
POTENTIAL EXISTS. THE MOST LIKELY TIME FRAME FOR HIGH WINDS WOULD
BE IN THE MID AFTERNOON TO EARLY EVENING SUNDAY. GUSTS TO 60 MPH
OR SLIGHTLY MORE WOULD BE POSSIBLE.
A SECOND EVEN STRONGER FRONT WILL MOVE IN ON MONDAY. THIS FRONT
HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BRING DAMAGING WINDS ALONG THE COAST...
INCLUDING THE COASTAL COMMUNITIES. AT THIS TIME...GUSTS TO 70 MPH
APPEAR POSSIBLE IN THE COASTAL COMMUNITIES...WITH GUSTS TO 80 MPH OR
HIGHER ON THE BEACHES AND HEADLANDS. IT WOULD NOT BE SURPRISING TO
SEE HURRICANE FORCE WIND GUSTS WITH THIS STORM...PARTICULARLY
ALONG THE BEACHES AND EXPOSED HEADLANDS...WHERE GUSTS TO 80 MPH OR
HIGHER ARE POSSIBLE. THIS WILL MAKE TRAVEL VERY DIFFICULT ALONG
HIGHWAY 101 AND OTHER COASTAL HIGHWAYS. CONFIDENCE ON THE STRENGTH
OF THIS FRONT IS MODERATE TO HIGH.
THERE WILL ALSO BE VERY STRONG WINDS IN THE COAST RANGE...ESPECIALLY
IN THE HIGHER EXPOSED ELEVATIONS WHERE SIMILAR GUSTS TO THOSE
EXPECTED ON THE HEADLANDS MAY OCCUR. LOWER COAST RANGE ELEVATIONS
MAY SEE GUSTS TO 60 MPH.
FOR THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY AND INTERIOR LOCATIONS...MONDAY WILL
ALSO BE WINDY. AT THIS TIME...SUSTAINED WINDS UP TO 30 MPH WITH
GUSTS TO 45 MPH ARE EXPECTED...THOUGH LOCAL HIGHER GUSTS ARE A
POSSIBILITY IF THE STORM TRACK CHANGES.
RESIDENTS AND TRAVELERS ON THE BUSY HOLIDAY TRAVEL WEEK SHOULD STAY
TUNED TO THE LATEST FORECASTS...AS FUTURE WATCHES OR WARNINGS ARE
EXPECTED

So do you still go to the closed meetings of our public officials? Seems your not much of a media source anymore.

Patrick McGee said...

You mean CCBofC "Executive Sessions" that I cannot report on anyway?

Do you go to those meetings yourself?

If you do, then you know the answer don't you?

It seems there is need for a new kind of interactive software, as open as a forum letting anyone post and the ownership pride of a blog which always gives top billing to its owner's topics and puts repies down on a secondary link. What would be better? Maybe making each thread starter a thread owner able to boot secondary comments or make them require a second link to see. Then people could write freely like on a forum or be regulated with the professionalism people give blogs. What do you think? Would you pay to develop this software? It could make handling anonomous thread hijackers easier.

Nope!

One already exists, "Dried Salmon Matters". It's kind of a "One Trick Hate Pony" and will show you exactly where what you want will go....in my opinion.

Whay don't you suck it up, use your real name, be accountable and start your own blog?

On something today? Dried Salmon is a regular forum except guest posters can use any name. The most popular implementation of a thread author control system is Facebook! Are you on Facebook?

Patrick McGee said...

What's Facebook?

There are several Patrick McGee's on Facebook.com and one in Astoria who is a friend of the Marquis, not the people. If it's not you someone has signed up impersonating you.
