FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE- A WARM FRONT LIFTING CLOSE TO SOUTHERN WISCONSIN AND LOW PRESSURE PASSING JUST TO THE SOUTH OF THE STATE WILL BRING SEVERAL ROUNDS OF THUNDERSTORMS TO SOUTHERN WISCONSIN TODAY INTO THIS EVENING.
SOME OF THE THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE STRONG TO SEVERE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING IN THE SOUTHERN HALF OF THE FORECAST AREA.

THERE IS A MODERATE RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS IN THE FAR SOUTHERN COUNTIES…WITH AN ENHANCED RISK OF SEVERE STORMS TO THE NORTH OF THE MODERATE AREA AND SOUTH OF A LINE FROM NEAR REEDSBURG TO MAYVILLE TO PORT WASHINGTON…AND A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS TO THE NORTH…INCLUDING FOND DU
LAC…SHEBOYGAN AND WESTFIELD. DAMAGING WINDS AND LARGE HAIL ARE THE PRIMARY THREATS…THOUGH A TORNADO CAN NOT BE RULED OUT IN THE FAR SOUTH CLOSE TO THE WARM FRONT.
