(3:00PM Mon, Oct 7th 2022) A storm system moving through the region on Friday and Saturday brought a period of high winds to the state, late Friday night/early Saturday morning through Saturday evening. These high winds were a product of rapidly developing/deepning storm system moving through the region, aiding in a rapidly strengthening wind field at the surface and on aloft into the atmosphere. Additionally, a line of showers along a cold front moving across the state on Saturday transported isolated higher wind gusts to the surface.

•A line of showers along an advancing cold front moving across the state on Saturday produced locally higher wind gusts of 60-80MPH.
