    December 9 High Winds

    An intense winter storm tracked across the Midwest on December 8 and 9.  This storm produced widespread blizzard conditions across parts of the Missouri and Mississippi Valleys, and widespread severe thunderstorms across the Gulf Coast States.  As the low tracked into the Great Lakes, a strong cold front swept through the Ohio Valley, bringing dropping temperatures and very gusty winds to much of the region. These winds resulted in numerous downed trees and powerlines, and produced scattered power outagesacross much of Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky.
