|Episode Narrative||An area of low pressure that developed across the Central Plains Monday evening, October 25, quickly intensified the morning of Tuesday, October 26th, as it moved northward across Minnesota.
Intense pressure drops, combined with the strong pressure gradient, caused wind speeds in Wisconsin to increase during the afternoon, which continued through Wednesday morning.
Widespread sustained winds of 30 to 40 mph, with gusts over 50 mph, were common from the late afternoon through the night, before tapering off Wednesday morning.
There were numerous reports of power outages during the height of the storm with more than 200,000 customers without power from Xcel Energy across Minnesota and Wisconsin.
|Event Narrative||Multiple large tree branches were blown down near Lake Magnor, or near the city of Clayton, Wisconsin, between 7 and 8 PM CST. In addition, nearly 5,000 customers were without power during the height of the storm. These winds also caused property damage in Frederic, Wisconsin, as large trees fell onto a home.|
