Ask a Meteorologist: Unusually windy pattern?

Elise from Oregon asks:  We seem to be in an unusually windy pattern. Why is that?

Answer: Thank you for your question. We have had a series of unusually strong, low pressure systems move across the upper Midwest. These systems, for the most part, are what have caused the very windy conditions over the past couple of months.
