Episode Narrative A strong and rapidly intensifying low pressure system moved from the Great Lakes across Ontario and western Quebec during the morning and early afternoon of January 9th. A very strong low-level wind field with southwest winds in excess of 60 mph just above the surface moved across Vermont during the early afternoon hours.

Some observed wind gusts included; 55 mph in Waitsfield (Washington county), 53 mph at Colchester Reef (Chittenden county) with 45 mph in Rutland (Rutland county) and Westford (Chittenden county).
