September 7, 2010 Wind Gust Summary

A strong area of low pressure moved across the Upper Midwest and southern Canada on September 7th. The track of the low took it from central Minnesota, across Lake Superior into southern Ontario. The strength of the low caused gusty west to northwest winds to develop across the region during the early morning hours behind a cold front. These wind gusts become stronger during the daylight hours with most locations seeing gusts between 35 and 45 mph. The winds quickly died down in the late afternoon and early evening as the area of low pressure continued to move away from the region. Locally, the highest recorded wind gust was 46 mph from a road sensor near Eyota, Minnesota (Olmsted County).
