Everyone Knows it’s Windy

An incredibly windy day across the Northeast today. Here in Connecticut, wind gusts over 60 mph in some spots, though the norm was more in the 35-45 mph range.

With all this wind, there were plenty of watches, warnings and advisories out. It was a chance to see how the automated NWS watch/warning page did.

Usually, it’s pretty good. Today, as my friend Bob Hart (safely and warmly in Florida) pointed out, it probably read text about hurricane strength winds, put 2 and 2 together and got 5!

Take a look at this afternoon’s map. Trust me – there was no hurricane.
