Issued 5 am CDT Mon Oct 25 2010
The intense storm we expect Tuesday and Wednesday has many similarities to the wind storm of Nov 10 1998. That storm produced widespread wind gusts of 60 to 70 mph over south central and southeast Wisconsin. Wind gusts in excess of hurricane force were reported near Lake Michigan from Ozaukee to Kenosha County.
More information on that storm can be found in the link below, including a map of measured wind gusts.
