#1 173 mph wind whips Squaw Valley peak01-09-2017, 09:37 PM
High winds whipped the Sierra on Sunday as an atmospheric river bringing rain and snow moved through Northern California.
The most impressive gusts blew at 173 mph on a Squaw Valley summit and 175 mph atop a peak in Alpine Meadows.
These bursts were far stronger than the 110 mph winds that were forecast to be the record-breakers for the day.
What's more, they would have been tornado had they been cyclonic and sustained.
