Howling northwest winds brought much colder weather on Wednesday. Peak wind gusts in Connecticut exceeded 50 mph, and there were sustained winds near 30 mph as the bitter cold air swept into the state. The wind was responsible for scattered damage and power outages. The wind will gradually diminish Wednesday evening under clear skies. Expect a lighter 10-20 mph breeze on Thursday.
