Episode Narrative A deep cyclone that brought record low barometric pressure to Grand Rapids for the month of December (28.86 in Hg), brought strong gradient winds to central Kentucky on December 9th. Gusty winds developed during the early morning hours and increased by late morning as colder air arrived. Sustained winds of 30 to 40 mph with peak wind gusts over 50 mph were widespread. Some of the strongest gusts developed over some of the higher terrain of the Bluegrass Region. The Kentucky Mesonet measured peak gusts of 56, 53, and 51 mph in Mercer, Lincoln, and Franklin counties respectively. Outside of the Louisville and Lexington metropolitan areas, Kentucky Utilities reported around 3000 brief power outages.
