OGDEN -- 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, Ogden Peak recorded gusts ranging from 38 mph to 65 mph, Struthwolf said.
Farmington's strongest gust, 50 mph, occurred about 3:45 a.m., while a gust of 65 mph was recorded in Centerville about 6:15 a.m.
The winds died down by mid-morning.
There were no reports of damage, Struthwolf said.
Friday's winds were nothing like those of Dec. 1. Gusts that day reached 102 mph in Centerville. Struthwolf said that is equal to the strength of a Category 2 hurricane.
"That was an anomaly. The last time we had a storm that strong was 10 years ago."
On Dec. 1, winds knocked down trees and power lines in Davis County. The wind also toppled semitrailers and blew debris through neighborhoods, causing schools and businesses to close. President Barack Obama declared the windstorm a major disaster, making federal aid available to help recovery efforts.
Obama's announcement means state and local governments and certain nonprofits can apply for money to repair or replace damaged facilities.
