    Default Big Wind Contest ...next 48 hours

    A huge pressure gradient is setting up behind this storm, and winds could easily be the highest of the year...

    I have my guess in at 148mph for the peak early Saturday Morning...

    On a side note, we've seen the pictures of the HEAVY icing at treeline right now on Tim/Vals pictures. I'm very concerned about tree damage with this storm...

    Deadline for entry....11:59 PM tonight (Thursday)

    xxxmph.

    It was pretty warm up there last night, don't you think most of that ice is gone?

    Edit....changed to 150mph below

    It was pretty warm, but there was also alot of ice...
    I suspect you're likely right though... much of it probably came down...the forest dodges a bullet!

    Peak winds shouldn't come until sunset tomorrow...with a few 'little' peaks along the way...

    I just noticed that in the MOS data. ETA peaking at 98kts.

    I'm changing my guess to 150mph.
