Weird, Warm November Weather Comes to Screeching Halt
WPS: High Winds Took Out Power to 3,000 Homes in Stevens Point.
Winter may finally be here.
Unseasonably warm weather and significant rainfall over the past several days will end Monday.
Temperatures leveled off in the mid- 40’s over the weekend but heavy winds started bringing in more seasonable weather, with a high of only 36 expected on Monday.
The National Weather Service issued an alert for hazardous weather alert this morning, saying winds of up to 50 mph are expected but should diminish throughout the morning.
Law enforcement across the area reports some damages from high winds Sunday night, but Central Wisconsin largely was spared from several weather that crossed the central part of the country, with a total of 67 tornadoes confirmed throughout southern Wisconsin, Illinois and several other states.
Wisconsin Public Service estimates some 8,000 households are without power as of 6:30 AM, with nearly 3,000 customers without power in Stevens Point.
