Spring gale

A northeast gale pounded the Port Washington shore Saturday morning with sustained winds of 40 mph and gusts to 50 mph. The National Weather Service predicted waves on the Wisconsin shore of up to 16 feet.

While the spring storm made it feel like anything but spring — and sleet and snow are in the forecast — it drew a crowd to the Port’s waterfront, where people watched in amazement as towering waves exploded against the breakwater.
