Snowind's Lyleland weather station sits 235 feet above the Columbia River. With an unobstructed wind view, it accurately reports wind from NNW to SSE directions. Even though above the river, wind speeds correlate very closely to the Lyle Sandbar and the Rowena-Doug’s corridor. The more west in the wind, better at Doug's. The more north, better at Rowena. Northwest is usually good for both.
