Nevada Flag Wind


Reno has been named the second windiest city in the United States.  Thanks to the Sierra Nevada storms and the Washoe Zephyr, (yes, it is a thing…check out the video below), Reno had 14 wind events in 2016 with a top speed of 90mph.  

Nashville came in first place with a maximum wind speed of 92mph.  Chicago, on the other hand, is not living up to its moniker “The Windy City.”  For the second year running, Chicago did not make the top 10 list.
