Episode Narrative A strong low pressure system tracked into the Pacific Northwest on the 2nd of May with a trailing cold front that moved into Wyoming the morning of the 4th. Ahead of the front, a strong pressure gradient developed giving us high wind warning criteria across southern Wyoming the morning of the 3rd with widespread warning criteria developing the morning of the 4th and persisting through the day. A brief period of calm winds was observed immediately behind the cold front in our northern counties, associated with a bubble high. But as the high moved east of the CWA, very strong west to northwest winds returned through sunset. Forecast soundings from across the region indicated the potential for a deep and well mixed boundary layer to mix extremely high wind gusts from roughly 600mb to the surface in the afternoon of the 4th. Observed soundings from nearby stations the morning of, and shortly after the event showed this deep boundary layer indeed did occur.
Event Narrative Bridgeport Coop observer reported power lines and tree branches down.
