OTOH, the media overhype things often.
In defense against this here is this Friday evening's plot of the data from
My graphic changes these numbers into graphs of the distribution of expected wind speeds, day by day, that the table provides.
Yes, the Sky is Falling! the Sky is Falling!
There are very slight probabilities of 180 knot winds.
But as the curves show, mostly in the 50-70 knot region. Not trivial, but not traumatizing if you are prepared.
Once again, there are no easy sound bite answers.
