Why is there 71KT of wind around KEWR area? I

I can’t takeoff because the area around KEWR is in 71KT in the ground. It’s rocking the plane and almost engine striking parked at the gate and I don’t know if this is a glitch from yesterday, but i cancelled my flights I had planned for today because of this issue. Anyone know why this is issue?

Yeah, I experienced 71 kts at La Guardia. The ATIS says 27 though.

It looks like the current METAR for Newark is showing 300@19G27, so it could be a glitch. As you said it was extremely windy last night after a line of storms pushed through, so it could be a result of that, too. Someone can probably tell you more than I can.

I can tell you this. In real life, the winds have been absolutely bonkers the last 24 hours in the mid Atlantic and Northeastern US. I thought for sure a tree was going to be on my truck the way it’s been blowing.

I think I just exceeded this pool CRJ9’s max cross wind component for landing. btw, look at the insane takoff distance of this 757.

When i tookoff in the CRJ7 that i later cancelled, I lifted up and my whole plane went towards the terminals. I almost got a violation.

71kts may be a bit off, but it is certainly very windy around the northern NJ area. The winds in my area are gusting up to 55mph at the moment.

Hey, as a person who lives in the area, we did not have 71kt winds, on friday last week it was around that but today it should be a good 30kts.
