" suddenly a furious storm began to blow."
Replace the adjective in the above sentence with an adjective phrase.

I have been wrecking my brain over this question. Please help what adjective phrase to use.

It also depends on how exact you want the meaning to be . . .
These say more or less the same thing, but use a slightly different concept from 'fury'.

"Suddenly a storm of immense proportions began to blow."
"Suddenly a storm like a furious monster began to blow."
"Suddenly a storm with the power of a Juggernaut began to blow."
