Episode Narrative A tight pressure gradient around strong low pressure over James Bay, 3-hourly pressure rises of 2 to 4 mb, and daytime mixing up to 925 mb winds of 35 to 45 knots produced strong gusty winds that affected parts of South Central and Southeast Wisconsin with sustained winds of 26 to 29 knots (30 - 33 mph) and gusts to 39 knots (45 mph). Scattered power-outages were noted by the media as old tree branches fell onto power lines. The responsible low pressure moved east across the northern part of Lake Superior which allowed strong west winds to affect parts of Wisconsin.
