Episode Narrative Strong and gusty northwest winds developed over South-Central and Southeast Wisconsin behind a cold front trailing from rapidly strengthening low pressure that tracked across northern Wisconsin into northern Lower Michigan on Thursday, September 29th. The resulting tight pressure gradient over the state produced 850 mb winds of 45 knots (52 mph) and 925 mb winds of 35 to 40 knots (45 and 55 mph). Surface winds gusted between 45 mph and 55 mph (39 to 48 knots), driven by 3-hourly pressure rises on the order of 4 millibars. The strong winds toppled trees and downed power lines at scattered locations across South-Central and Southeast Wisconsin.
