Peak Wind Gusts Friday Afternoon

Last Friday was NOT a day to be outside.  Even though the temperature reached 58 degrees in Rockford, you couldn't even enjoy it with nearly 60 mph wind gusts late morning through mid-afternoon.

Numerous semi trucks were blown over on area highways and interstates, and there were several damage reports from Rockford to Chicago.  Here are a few of the peak wind gusts from Friday afternoon.  Those numbers are highway speeds!  Thankfully it doesn't look like we have anything like that coming our way anytime soon.
