The National Weather Service reported wind gusts well over 40 miles per hour earlier today, and the sensor on top of the Blatnik Bridge reportedly clocked wind gusts around 60 miles per hour as this late-season winter storm tracked into the Twin Ports.

Those winds blowing ashore led to some pretty breathtaking waves washing up along the shoreline in Canal Park. Those same waves blew water mist into the air, glazing much of the Lakewalk and grass between the shoreline and hotels with a coat of ice. Here are some photos of the waves.
