Marching Through New England’s Windiest Month

3/31/2022 (Permalink)

It’s no secret that strong winds can cause serious storm damage. Don’t forget that these winds can blow just as fast in the spring as they can during some of our epic winter storms. Our SERVPRO team has seen plenty of storm damage during the spring season. 

In fact, according to Michael Cempa, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, located in Gray, Maine, “Spring and fall tend to be breezier because there are more temperature contrasts in the atmosphere, which help to produce the wind.”

Speaking of wind, March is typically the windiest month in New England, with winds averaging 7 mph. The good news is these speeds are not fast enough to do any real damage. 

Damaging winds are defined as those which blow in excess of 50-60 mph, often witnessed during some strong thunderstorms. 

Since New England does get its fair share of strong thunderstorms, keep your local SERVPRO team’s number handy in the event of storm damage to your home or business. 

Access professional storm remediation services you can trust by contacting SERVPRO of Stoneham / Wakefield.
