    Additional notes

    Unseasonably warm air across the Ohio Valley came to an abrupt end on the 11th of February, 2009, as a cold front approached the region. An intense line of convection developed ahead of the front, stretching from Indiana and Ohio into the Gulf Coast states. There were numerous reports of winds above severe criteria (58 MPH). One complex of showers and storms near the Cincinnati area also produced marginally severe hail.

    Behind the cold front, very strong winds funneled into the region from the west and northwest, and atmospheric conditions led to these winds easily reaching the surface. Virtually the entire region experienced gusts above 50 MPH, with gusts above 60 MPH not being uncommon. The highest recorded wind was a gust to 76 MPH in Darke County, Ohio.
