Do you have any idea when we might get some relief from the nearly non-stop winds of the last few months? This is the windiest late winter and spring I can recall. It’s nearly June now. Surely this will stop some time…won’t it? I’m a fisherman, and every trip to the lake is a beating.

ANSWER

These winds are caused by storm systems migrating in slowly form the Pacific Coast, and then traversing the Plains very slowly; by the time they have reached the Mid-West, there is another on the Pacific Coast; after a day or two of respite, the process starts all over again.

Climatologically, they should let up in early June. By that time, the procession of storms across the Pacific has shifted well north of the United States. I see no reason to think that this will not happen this year, as well.
