High Wind warning now up for the Triangle with gusts to 60 mph possible. What changed? More efficient mixing of winds to surface with daytime heating? Not seeing any wind reports near that downstream of us in Raleigh

I know, the western part of the state was always supposed to get that. 
 

It’s kicked up last 30 min. Nothing bad but gusts 25-30 for sure. Leaves blowing around good

Had about an hour or two of the 25-30 mph gusts.  But the damage was done in the 15 minutes of (i'm estimating) 45-60mph gusts.  Took everything down at that point.  So I would be expecting a brief intense period of wind east of the triad as the day progresses.  

EDIT- As I type this there was another very strong gust likely around 45-50mph.

It's mixing down very efficiently. Radar has us with 60mph winds at like 5k feet and we're getting gusts in rain bands pretty close to that.

Watch out whoever ends up under that band. I would not be surprised to see those 80mph gusts verify.

I thought the wind would die down with the exit of the shower bands.....WRONG!  Its getting consistently worse here in the Triad.

Looks like you have the last band of heavy wind over you right now. Should get better soon I think?

Winds have picked up here in eastern NC. Probably in the 15 to 25 mph range right now. Dew point has also ramped up, at 75 now with a temp of 80. Feels very muggy out there even with the wind.

Definitely pretty gusty in Raleigh but not super impressive thus far.

I would imagine the action is about to pick up. We saw our worst winds in those broken up looking light showers.

Probably 40-45 mph wind gusts. What the advisory had called for. Calmed down now. Still wondering why the upgrade to the high wind warning 

Yeah I think the High Wind Warning was an overreaction.

My peak gust as measured by my weather station was 54.8. It was rocking and rolling for a while. Interestingly the highest gusts were after the squall line went through.

My little county here in NE GA is still at 98% without power. I don't know what all has happened to the grid, but it must be an absolute mess.

Rain was not that impressive IMBY today (1.15 inches), but I have now climbed above 83 inches for the calendar year, which is just INSANE for this location.  I continue to build on the wettest year I've ever had at this location in nine years of living here.  Almost 10 inches of rain in October too.  I think 100 inches is probably pretty unlikely, but it's definitely not out of the question and what I am currently on pace for this year.

More impressive than us. Didn't get a drop and I sit at 49.13" for the year.

We got smacked in Travelers Rest. We had a tree fall in MBY and more back down in the woods on my property. To be honest, I am surprised there weren’t more because I have NEVER seen the trees bend like they did this morning. There were loads of trees and transformers downs in our surrounding neighborhoods and throughout the county, and at one point I saw where Greenville County had about 65k power outages.

I remember having a few tropical storms come our way over the past few years, but today’s definitely took the cake.

Top gust was 41 but im a bit protected from South winds. Didn't lose power thankfully but over a million out of power in ga at its peak was impressive. 

Winds are almost as gusty now as this morning. Gusting several times to 35/36. Jackson County Airport gust to 48mph last observation.  In fact outages have gone back up in ga the past few hours. So not out of the woods.
