High winds blew through portions of Davis and Weber counties early Friday but produced no reports of damage.

Winds that gusted to 71 mph on Ogden Peak around 2:45 a.m. were caused by a storm over Colorado and a ridge of high pressure over the Pacific Northwest, said Mark Struthwolf, a meteorologist with the National Weather Surface in Salt Lake City.

Around 10 a.m. Friday, recorded gusts at Ogden Peak ranged from 38 mph to 65 mph, Struthwolf said.

The strongest gust in Farmington of 50 mph occurred about 3:45 a.m. while a 65-mph gust was recorded in Centerville about 6:15 a.m. The winds died down off by mid-morning.

There were no reports of damage from the winds, Struthwolf said.
