Episode Narrative A tight pressure gradient around strong low pressure tracking across southern Canada produced gusty southwest winds over southern Wisconsin during the day on March 10th. The surface gradient winds were enhanced by a 40-knot low level jet that mixed down to the surface during maximum daytime heating. Sustained wind speeds were between 30 mph and 35 mph (26 to 30 knots), with gusts of 40 to 47 mph (35 to 41 knots). There were scattered reports of snapped power-lines due to the impact of fallen tree branches.
