Episode Narrative Growing clusters of strong to severe thunderstorms over northeast and east-central Wisconsin interacted with a Lake Michigan lake breeze boundary. The storms became better organized and grew and became more widespread, producing large hail, wind damage and torrential rainfall that led to some minor flooding.

Winnebago County was hardest hit by the storms with hail to golf ball size, wind gusts of 60 to 70 mph and heavy rainfall. Damage there was estimated at $250,000. Construction signs, barrels and a crane were toppled by the thunderstorm winds and approximately 500 homes sustained at least minor damage from the hail. Torrential rainfall caused minor street flooding in the Oshkosh area and ponding of water on part of U.S. Highway 41. As many as four homes in the county may have been struck by lightning during the storms.
Event Narrative Thunderstorm winds downed trees near the intersection of STH 52 and CTH W.
