A strong fall weather system allowed for severe thunderstorms to develop along a cold front and bring damaging winds in excess of 70 mph to the area yesterday. Strong winds were also noted both before the cold front passed through and afterwards in its wake.

Note that this information is still preliminary and will be updated in the coming days.

A strengthening low pressure system caused strong winds ahead of and behind a powerful cold front on Tuesday, November 10th.

In addition, a fast moving line of severe thunderstorms moved across the area from mid afternoon through the early evening. The line of severe thunderstorms produced numerous observed severe wind gusts, some significant.

There were pockets of extensive wind damage, and a few brief tornadoes may have occurred (but no tornadoes have yet been confirmed as of the early morning of November 11th).

Furthermore, hail larger than quarter size (1″ in diameter) was observed in portions of Winnebago County.
