    It looks like today may be one of those rare ones where the average wind speed is 100+ mph.

    I believe the last one was Jan 16, 2006, which had an avg speed of 101.9 mph. The highest in recent times was 116.8 mph on Dec 4, 1980. It's only happened nine times since 1940 according to a list that one of the MWO staff was nice enough to send me a few months back.

    And, for any 24-hour period, I believe the record was 129.0 mph, from 4pm Apr 11 to 4pm Apr 12, 1934.

    Looks like 148.5 is going to stick...Not quite cat 5, but still a very good wind!

    Looks like JimS is our winner...Congrats to JimS!

    So where did this put the lowest wind chill figure? It's showing -52F right now with temp of -10 and 80-90MPH. Not sure how the wind chill calc works with peak gusts.

    Looks like yesterday (with an average wind speed of 104.5 mph) was the windiest day since Dec 4, 1980, when the average wind for the day was 116.8 mph. Their peak gust that day was 178mph.

    Um, hold on there. According to the MWO website the peak wind gust was 149mph. We measure wind speed to the nearest whole mile per hour, and even that is pushing it.

    It looks like a tie between Jim and I.
