    Default Hope your enjoying....

    Been keeping track of the weather over the last few days. Looks like the winds are getting interesting now.

    BTW...time to update the server with the new time...it's one hour fast on the weather page.

    HAVE FUN! I wish I could experience it.

    I moved a copy of the Conditions image from the strongest wind to the Favorites-2006 album. This gives a URL that should not change as images get archived.

    144 mph, not bad for October. Did anyone notice what caused that spike in windspeeds just before 7pm when the 144mph gust occured? Did a front move through or did some precipitation mix down stronger winds?

    At 2:00 AM (3:00 AM on the image due to the time change) the top wind hit 158.1 MPH.

    Default Huray!

    The 20Jul96 Wind records are finally broken -- I could be wrong, but I believe that this wind event is the first since the July wind of 1996 to peak at or beyond 154 mph.

    I can't wait to see what the resulting 24 hour wind will be.

    I was thinking the same thing. I know 158mph is a multi-year high, but I don't know how far back that goes. For some reason I keep thinking there was a 164mph gust several years ago, but this is just a hunch.

    Either way, 158mph is big news for the mountain. Just 3mph shy of the October Record and 22mph off the building record.

    Cool

    Hi Bill,

    I didn't recall the October wind record -- I didn't realize just how close the 158 was.

    I both envy and slightly fear for the lucky observers who are on the summit when the 180 record is broken. I thought the moans, creeks, pops, and shudders when the winds ran much over 120 were creepy, I can't imagine the terrifyingly beautiful cacophany that would accompany the sustained and peak winds beaking the current building record.

    With that said I got a crazy idea -- I know there are audio recordings of the wind from the 19-20July96 event -- ( sumit crew: ) is there any audio / video being taken of the winds from this event? Such would be great gifts .

    Here is a list of the monthly records: Normals, Means & Extremes

    Jim Salge just confirmed in the web comments that this was the strongest gust since July 1996 (pending data review).

    Along with Jim's comments was an image of the wind chart.

    I seemed to have misplaced my trusty Hays Chart conversion table so I can't analyze all those winds, but it looks like the 1am hour averaged over 8 inches.
