Episode Narrative A tight pressure gradient between low pressure over Ohio and a ridge of high pressure extending from North Dakota into Ontario, Canada, produced strong north to northeast winds over most of South-Central Wisconsin and Southeast Wisconsin. Daytime heating of dry air that had spread into the region with the leading edge of the high allowed mixing up to 40 to 45 knot winds about 5,000 feet above ground level. This mixing resulted in sustained winds of 30 to 35 mph and wind gusts up to 45 mph at the surface. Scattered power-outages were reported due to broken tree branches falling on and snapping power-lines.
