      Peak gusts from Sunday's 'First Day of Fall' Storm

      Mother Nature wasted no time introducing autumn to the Northwest, with an October-like cold front that brought a period of rain and gusty winds to the region.

      Here are some of the peak wind gusts from the storm, as compiled from the National Weather Service:
