Correct. Those will not be sustained at the surface but I find the 850mb winds are useful for predicting wind gusts if those winds can mix down. And those 70knot 850mb winds over us seem to correllate well with what MNR is predicting in the above statement for gusts (45-85knots) so I would certainly expect to see that verify at this point.
