    Default Wind gusts on Nov. 28th!

    I'm at my parents house in NJ and it sounds like a night on Washington here...so it's no suprise that with this nor'easter coming close to the mountains now, it just gusted to 137 already! Winds aren't forecast to peak until 7am to 10am!

    Interesting morning for them up there!

    Hi Jim..

    Besides seeing your parents and family, don't you hate leaving NH to come to NJ, is this where you are from?

    I'm in North Jersey and yes it is very windy, peoples garbage cans are flying all over the street.

    Only gusting to 30 in VT right now, but I just saw a gust over 50mph at White Plains in NY.

    Yesterday's snow on MWN made a big dent in their deficit for November.

    In Mary Ellen's comments on Friday she says she hasn't yet experienced winds over the century mark. At 137 MPH, I think her wish has more than come true.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees

    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    I'm the volunteer this week. I was hoping for this. My previous high wind was 86 mph. Got my first butt slide on the deck this morning, Check out the ObsCast later. Just came down from the instrument tower to (watch) the deicing. I was on top for a 109 gust.

    That must be quite the experience. Been blowing around pretty hard down here in Western MA. "Hard" being relative to local conditions, of course.

    No - the crew said it is almost impossible to do with NW winds - West are best. It was also very gusty - 75mph could turn into 120 in a hurry. But - it sure was one of those once in a lifetime experiences. The force of the wind and the noise and the feel of the ice pellets were just incredible. I was in the Coast Guard and have been at sea in New England nor'easters and a Cat 1 hurricane off Hatteras. Yesterday was right up there as far a extreme weather is concerned, for sure.
