MRB gusted to 62 mph earlier this evening.  A CWOP station in Hagerstown also recorded a 62 mph gust.  My top gust at 10m is 55 mph so far.

Winds went even higher overnight.  MRB with a 66 mph gust, and the Hagerstown CWOP had one 65 mph.  An 81 mph gust was reported via Mesonet near Wintergreen in Nelson Co., VA.

Scary loud early morning winds. Had to have a few gusts around 60mph. Died down for a few minutes now but around sunrise it was nuts. We do wind well. Backyard is a swamp.

Windy, but at least inside the Beltway it has been a run-of-the-mill synoptic wind event.  Highest gust at DCA so far is 44mph.  Pretty much matches what I have at home.  IAD has been in the upper 40s and Andrews has been to 52.  Nothing like last March.

This feels like more than a run-of-the-mill synoptic wind event in downtown Baltimore at the moment. I am in a 22 story steel frame building (20th floor) and the gusts are literally shaking the building. I have not experienced that here before and I have worked here since October of 2010.

 

It is quite unsettling, frankly.

I would say the gusts in my neck of the woods have been in the 40-50 MPH range.  I've seen worse, especially with that high wind event last winter.   Hopefully, not too many people lost power or trees in the their yards.   Considering how wet it's been, I guess the silver lining with the wind is that it does dry things out on the surface.

Mine too.  I feel for you.

My back yard has been a swamp since the fall

Well we have officially lost power in Emmitsburg. Wind had been bad but a few minutes ago a gust hit that just seemed to last forever. As soon as it ended....power went out.

Seemed like some decent gusts here but honestly thought it would have been worse overnight/today. 

Worst here was last night.

Also see the HWW canceled, WA in effect.  Besides the occasional gust, average is very low for a "wind event" here.  We tend to bust frequently on legitimate wind (sustained) that is.  This is certainly nothing like last March for sure.

Which, TBH, is good for us as we have a lot of tree work to do and I don't want to deal with a costly insurance claim when they come down.

And that video, FTS.  Too much rolling for me.  Rolling on a ship is bad enough but the period is much shorter on an airliner.  Multiple replays of breakfast is no fun.
