    I've just recorded a 53mph gust which is the highest since I got my Davis.

     

    We're very sheltered here, so I imagine 70-80mph isn't out of the question locally.

    Lost power for 20 minutes just after 6.30pm. I don't think my Davis has recorded a higher gust than this evening with 51mph at 1831, the airport seems to have got to the upper 60's, which seems about right in my very sheltered location.
