Update on the record pressures from the storm; wind reports too

October 27, 2010 1 Comment

Here is an update on what is so far known about the record low pressures on Tuesday, October 26th, 2010:

NEW RECORD – MINNESOTA – 28.20 inHg (or 954.96 mb): Bigfork, 5:13 PM.
(Previous Minnesota record: 962.6 mb in Albert Lea & Austin, November 10th, 1998)

The record was first broken shortly after 10 AM as the low passed by Aitkin, Minnesota. Several northern Minnesota cities were in competition for the “lowest pressure” reading, as the low continued to intensify after it passed Aitkin, to the amusement of all meteorologists and weather enthusiats (honestly – it was sincerely a game of “Who Can Find The Lowest Pressure?”) In continued to fall until the lowest did in fact occur at Bigfork. 

NEW RECORD – WISCONSIN – 28.38 inHg (or 961.06 mb): Superior, 11:15 AM
(Previous Wisconsin record: 961.06 mb in Green Bay, April 3rd, 1982)

Other cities set low pressure records, including International Falls (28.23 inHg/955.98mb, 3:45 PM) and Duluth (28.37 inHg/960.72 mb, 11:13 AM), and LaCrosse (28.685 inHg/971.4 mb, 5:53 AM).

Thanks to the NWS Duluth, NWS La Crosse, and NWS Twin Cities for this information.

    Hi there :) Is it alright if I go a bit off topic? I am trying to view the site on my new iPod Touch but it won’t show correctly, any suggestions? Shall I try and find an upgrade for my computer or something? Thanks! Tana x :)
