A regional climatology of strong wind gusts associated with thunderstorms is presented, and the ability to estimate gust strength from ambient conditions is tested. Strong wind events were selected for 10 stations in New South Wales, Australia, from anemograph records and coincident thunderstorm reports. Most events took place between midafternoon and late evening and during the warmer months of the year, which is broadly consistent with the occurrence of severe thunderstorms in general.
