High winds cause power outages in northeast Wisconsin

by

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - It’s still breezy in Wisconsin Friday morning – but it’s not as bad as Thursday, when thousands of residents lost their power due to high winds.

Gusts were as high as 69 miles an hour at Sister Bay in Door County. Winds hit 58 miles an hour at Kenosha, and 56 near Marinette. Sheboygan had sustained winds of around 30 miles an hour when gusts of 45 hit.

Tree branches fell in a number of places.

The Wisconsin Public Service utility said over 21,000 customers were still without power at 5:30 a.m. in northeast Wisconsin. That includes almost 7,000 customers in Door County, and over 2,000 apiece in the Green Bay, Marinette, and Wabeno areas.

Friday morning, winds are generally under 20 miles an hour throughout the Badger State. But Door County still has a high wind warning until 10 o’clock.

Most of Wisconsin is supposed to remain breezy Friday with a chance of rain in the far north and east.

High winds are still predicted on Lakes Michigan and Superior. And the SS Badger car ferry between Manitowoc and Ludington Michigan will not run Friday due to the weather.

The winds are expected to die down tonight – but it will also get colder.

Forecasters predict frost away from the Great Lakes, and lows generally in the 30’s.

A clear day is expected statewide Saturday with highs in the 50’s.
