The talk is mostly about tornadoes. That gets the press, but this may very well be a system of BOTH very high wind gusts and tornadoes. A 60 MPH wind gust is a significant thing. A 70-80 MPH gust will do tornado-like damage. (1/2) #valleywx
Pictured here: ECMWF (Euro) wind gusts about 30' above the ground through 4 AM Monday (CDT). The wind threat is similar to the storms in January.
We had both very high wind gusts and tornadoes this day.

I'll add one more to this thread. This is the new high wind probability. It's the odds of a wind gust over 75 MPH within 25 miles of any point in the purple shading is 45%. That's a strong statement. #valleywx
