RodneyS Posted November 2, 2012 Share Posted November 2, 2012 I believe 10/29 was also the 5th wettest day ever at BWI, but I can't recheck it since Sterling's site is still down. Once it's back up I'm going to post the top five days. Do you or anyone else know what the records are for top wind gusts at BWI and DCA? Say, top five or top ten events. I know 7/18/10 was 72 mph at BWI, which is the highest I've ever seen in my lifetime. I assume Hazel will be the highest- I thought I saw that mentioned in another thread. I know Sandy's winds won't make the list, but it just got me curious. I'm not even sure if wind records are tracked? I don't have the complete list, but I posted on the Hurricane Sandy thread that the highest wind gust ever recorded at DCA was 98 miles per hour during Hurricane Hazel on (Friday) October 15, 1954; see http://www.washingto...1ZtdJ_blog.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
