Episode Narrative The New Year started off with strong winds that developed in the wake of deepening low pressure as it crossed east-northeast over far southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois to Lake Huron by the afternoon of January 1st. Three-hourly pressure rises of 6-8mb, along with the tight pressure gradient and steepening lapse rates behind the departing low produced sustained northwest to west winds of 30 to 35 mph, and wind gusts of 45 to 50 mph over all of South Central and Southeast Wisconsin during the morning into the early afternoon hours. Scattered power outages were noted by the media due to broken tree branches impacting power-lines.
