Episode Narrative Southern Wisconsin was situated between a polar high pressure area centered over southeast Canada and a strong low pressure that tracked from the central Plains toward northwest Illinois during the day on April 15th. The resulting tight surface pressure gradient over the region produced sustained east winds of 25 to 35 mph with peak gusts between 45 and 54 mph over a nearly 12-hour period. Scattered power outages were noted across southern Wisconsin due to broken tree branches falling on to power-lines.
Event Narrative Strong east to northeast gradient winds gusted to 45 mph (39 knots) as southern Wisconsin was between low pressure passing to the west and high pressure to the east.
