Episode Narrative Strong and gusty northwest winds developed over 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 53 mph (39 to 46 knots), driven by 3-hourly pressure rises on the order of 4 millibars. The strong winds, which continued into the early morning hours of September 30th, toppled trees and downed power lines across Southeast Wisconsin. The power outages indirectly led to the death of a 49-year-old Milwaukee man on a ventilator.
