But not enough thermal stress to crack windows.

Spearfish holds the world record for the fastest recorded temperature change. On January 22, 1943, at about 7:30 a.m. MST, the temperature in Spearfish was −4 °F (−20 °C). The Chinook wind picked up speed rapidly, and two minutes later (7:32 a.m.) the temperature was +45 °F (7 °C). The 49 °F or 27 °C rise in two minutes set a world record that still holds. By 9:00 a.m., the temperature had risen to 54 °F (12 °C). Suddenly, the chinook died down and the temperature tumbled back to −4 °F or −20 °C. The 58 °F or 32.2 °C drop took only 27 minutes.[18][19][20] The sudden change in temperatures caused glass windows to crack and windshields to instantly frost over.

Damn. That storm escalated quickly!! I was on the phone at my WFH desk. Windows open, light breeze, and on the phone with a clinic... then wham wind blasting in through the window with rain slapping me in the face!

Fuck me! Had to wipe the rain off the desk and computer.

Everything here is coated in 1/2" to 1" of ice from that storm. Lots of people out of power.

72° to 59° change in 3 miles of highway driving into a storm. 65 mph cross winds and flooded roads... The AWD gauge was going fucking bonkers...

I wish the RS had that. I'd love to see it freak out in Drift mode or when I hammer it from a stop.
