Actually a "Chinook" is a wind. The wind blows down the mountains and foothills as they drop in elevation they pick up speed and temperature. They are most often seen in the winter and spring.

Yes, a Chinook is an atmospheric event as well as a fish. But that list is great. Seen it before but that one has a few new ones. Love being a native, and wouldn't have it any other way.

Chinook: My wife says it's a warm wind that blows from the lowest point of the covers to the highest.
