Good Morning: Leave Your Umbrella at Home Today

Replacing yesterday's rain is today's winds. Breezy, windy and all that: We'll see winds from the west blowing at between 14 and 19 miles per hour. The high will be about 61 degrees today.

The strongest wind ever recorded was in a F5 tornado in Oklahoma City in 1999: 318 miles per hour. That'll ruin your umbrella --and everything else-- quickly. The highest non-tornadic wind ever recorded happened in 1934 on the top of Mt. Washington in New Hampshire: 231 miles per hour.
