Here's a snapshot of the VAD winds early Friday afternoon from the Pedro Dome NexRad Radar, high atop Pedro Dome, northeast of Fairbanks.
This shows 40 kts of wind at 3000 feet MSL (that's only a few hundred feet above the elevation of the radar) increasing to 50 kts at 6000' MSL. The most recent winds are on the right of the graphic, courtesy of the WeatherUnderground
