Review of this week's wind storm

Even though we knew it was coming, the intense low pressure system that developed over the Plains early this week certainly was amazing, not only in the variety of weather conditions produced, but also in the amount of area the storm affected.

To help summarize the many aspects of the storm, here are some links to National Weather Service websites that you may find interesting...

This first one provides an overview of the strength of the storm:
