Episode Narrative Strong low pressure tracked from the Ohio River Valley into the eastern Great Lakes with a tight pressure gradient developing over far eastern Wisconsin on November 29th. Strong north to northeast winds flowing over the low-friction surface of Lake Michigan allowed sustained winds to reach 30 to 35 mph, with wind gusts between 45 and 55 mph, to affect near shore locations from Sheboygan to Kenosha. The strongest wind gust was reported at the lake shore observation site near the Kenosha Harbor with a 55 mph (48 knot) wind gust, with a 53 mph (46 knot) gust at the John H. Batten Airport in Racine.
