Look for a High pressure over Utah, or a call in Southern Cali for Santanas,
or of course, an approaching front. The most consistent wind will likely
be North at Kathrine's after a Front has gone through, and a High pressure
has reestablished itself over Utah or the 4 corners area. Typically good for
6.5-5.5 wind with dips into your small quiver, if the front was strong.
