Title: Frequency of dry east winds over northwest Oregon and southwest Washington.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)
Description: There is a close relation between occurrences of severe easterly winds and large forest fires in northwest Oregon and southwest Washington. With the east winds comes the dreaded combination of low humidity and high wind that in the past has whipped small fires into conflagrations such as the Tillamook fire of 1933 and the fire that burned Bandon in 1936. These easterly winds are of the foehn type, typically dry because they are downslope winds.
