Figure 1.1 above Peak gusts (mph and km/h) for the August 29, 2015 windstorm. Wind speeds are largely from long-term surface airways weather observation sites, data buoys, lighthouses and C-MAN stations, with limited data from other networks (e.g. RAWS). Stations with long histories are preferred because of the research focus on intercomparison of historic storms. Numbers preceded by a tilde (~) represent the highest gust report in a dataset that has been interrupted at the height of the storm--usually data loss is from power outages. Values in italics are gusts estimated from peak wind, usually 2-minute or 5-minute, using a 1.3 gust factor. Stations with high-wind criteria gusts (≥58 mph or 93 km/h) are denoted with white-filled circles. Isotachs depicting ≥60 mph (~100 km/h) gusts are included to highlight the regions that had concentrations of the indicated magnitudes. The track of the extratropical cyclone center is shown (yellow arrow). Click on the map to see a larger version. Here is a map listing the station names.
