Episode Narrative A warm front lifted through southern Wisconsin on the nose of a 30 knot low-level jet. Good elevated instability...MLCAPE 2000-3000J/kg...and 40 to 50 knots of deep layer shear supported an MCS as it tracked from northern Iowa across southern Wisconsin during the early morning hours of June 23rd. Although the complex weakened as it crossed Wisconsin, it still produced scattered wind damage as well as flash flooding in portions of Jefferson County and northwest Waukesha County.
Event Narrative A lightning strike in the city of Mequon resulted in a fire at a strip mall in the 1100 block of North Port Washington Road that destroyed 9 businesses. Time is estimated. Other severe weather was reported in southern Wisconsin during the pre-dawn hours of June 23, 2010.
