Episode Narrative Isolated severe storms affected southeast Wisconsin with large hail and strong winds gusting to around 56 knots (65 mph). Synoptically, low pressure moved northeast through the La Crosse area while a warm front pushed north to a Marquette to Sheboyban county line. Daytime maximum temperatures reached the 70s while surface dewpoints peaked in the 50s. Clusters or short lines of storms were generated.
Event Narrative In addition to the hail, wind gusts were in the 35 to 43 knot range (40 to 50 mph), resulting in some broken small branches.
