Episode Narrative A low pressure system deepened over northern Minnesota and set the Wisconsin state record for the lowest recorded barometric pressure. This system was responsible for high winds across portions of southwest and central Wisconsin in the morning hours of October 26th and the daytime hours of the 27th. Automated weather observing equipment measured wind gusts of 59 miles per hour at La Crosse (La Crosse) and 58 miles per hour at Platteville (Grant). The high winds knocked down a tree onto a vehicle and injuring the driver in Crawford County. Numerous trees blown were blown down, some power lines also came down causing power outages across western and central Wisconsin. Sporadic damage to roofs and buildings also occurred.
Event Narrative Several trees and power lines were blown down across the county, including in the communities of Melrose, Taylor, and Black River Falls. Some power outages were reported in Black River Falls. A barn near Merrillan was blown down and an out building was damaged along County Road B west of U.S. Highway 12.
