Wind speeds hit a high as 137 mph at some Cascade ski resorts Tuesday

Scott's Note: In the original text, I erroneously crowned White Pass the wind champ at 119 mph, but it turns out I didn't run Mission Ridge's data back far enough. Lo and behild, they hit an eye-popping 137 mph gust Tuesday evening!

The Olympic Mountains may be home to Hurricane Ridge, but it was some of the Cascade ridges that took on hurricane-force winds during Tuesday's windstorm.

As an intense low pressure system passed by just to the north, it created an incredible pressure difference along the eastside of the Cascades, bringing triple-digit wind speeds to some spots.

Mission Ridge took the trophy for the greatest windspeed clocked in the state with a 137mph gust recorded at the 6,730 foot level. That was just its peak gust. The anemometer recorded gusts over 90 mph for 14 consecutive hours (and 17 of 18 hours), including an 8-hour stretch with hourly peak gusts of 112, 128, 135, 127, 110, 137, 113, 98.

White Pass, about 1,000 feet lower, didn't do too shabby as second place with this eight-hour stretch: 113, 115, 119, 115, 99, 116, 114 and 113 mph.

But they weren't alone in the 110+ category: Crystal Mountain registered a 107 mph gust at 6,830 feet and Rattlesnake Ridge had a gust of 115 mph.

In Western Washington, Everett's Paine Field was the champion of the official measuring sites, with a gust of 58 mph.

Here are some of the other gusts:
