    Default Mini Contest - Kyle high wind

    NEWS FLASH - - - NEWS FLASH

    We are starting a short duration mini-contest to guess the high wind for Hurricane Kyle as it passes by the coast of Maine.

    Start guessing now and guesses close at 3:00 PM Sunday (today).

    On the F6 reports for Sunday or Monday (whichever is higher), September 28th and 29th, what will be the highest wind speed recorded? The winner is the guess which comes closest and DOES NOT go over the actual speed. All guesses must be a whole number.

    45mph. And I fear I'm going to go over. Sorry, but this is not a wind maker for Mount Washington.

    Looks like a nonstarter

    FYI, if you guess under 35mph it looks like you lose automatically.

    There is a lot of media hype down here in NC about how big a deal this will be for northern New England. My guess is 23 MPH believing there has been no significant gust so far today.

    I revise my earlier statement. It looks like the summit had some gusts just over 30mph around 1am this morning.
