Episode Narrative Strong southwest winds gusting to 39 to 45 knots (45 to 52 mph) raked southeast Wisconsin. Scattered power outages occurred due to broken limbs falling on power lines. Synoptically, low pressure moved northeast through the western tip of Lake Superior. Behind the trailing cold front a tight, surface pressure gradient formed, resulting in strong surface winds. Up at the 850 mb level (roughly 5,000 feet above the ground), wind speeds increased to 45 knots (52 mph).
