POLTERGUST it is! Great name.

We can see cold fronts easily - that's when you have a clearly defined cloud structure like a long straight line or circle coming at you - a sure sign to pack up and go home in a hurry.

But poltergusts happen with clear skies, the only warning is the sudden wind drop.
