High winds at KAIRA

Last night we had some pretty extreme weather at KAIRA. In Kilpisjärvi the highest average wind speed was 38.7 m/s on Saana and around 25 m/s in the village. The record on Saana was 44.3 m/s! Fortunately, there are heavy snow depth conditions on the site, meaning that the antennas should mostly be weighed down and, thus, safer.

Note the wind-graph at the bottom.

And despite the wind, it is still mostly cloudy.  :-P
