Monday Wind Event

Monday was a windy day across the State of Michigan as a strong storm system was moving through the area. This system was the system that was also responsible for the tornado outbreak across the Plains states this past weekend, and the wet weather Saturday night and Sunday night for Michigan. Below is a map of the system and its position at 2 pm on Monday afternoon, when the winds were still blowing quite strong.
