WW0370 RADAR Thumbnail Image A Tornado Watch continues in effect until 5 am for most of S. Wisconsin and N. Illinois. It does not include the counties that border Lake Michigan. A line of strong to occasionally severe thunderstorms will continue to move across S. Wisconsin and N. Illinois during the early morning. Some of these storms should hold together long enough to make it across Lake Michigan after 4 am.   A few showers and storms have formed ahead of the main line over Oceana, Mason and Lake Counties as of 1:45 am.   Anyone that gets a storm can expect gusty winds and brief heavy rain. The Storm Prediction Center says: “PRIMARY THREATS INCLUDE…A FEW TORNADOES AND A COUPLE INTENSE TORNADOES POSSIBLE SCATTERED LARGE HAIL AND ISOLATED VERY LARGE HAIL EVENTS TO 2 INCHES IN DIAMETER POSSIBLE SCATTERED DAMAGING WIND GUSTS TO 70 MPH POSSIBLE. Follow the storms on Milwaukee (Sullivan) radar, Chicago radar and Grand Rapids radar.  Here’s surface weather observations from Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan.   Here’s storm reports from Sunday/Sunday night – as I write this, 11 tornadoes have been reported in IA, MO, KS, WI.

Likely tornado damage from Highland, WI, to near Gov. Dodge State Park, emergency management reports (that’s in Iowa and Dane Counties west and northwest of Madison)…A tornado was reported on the ground 9 miles SE of Spring Green, WI…up to 6″ of rain was reported in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  Here’s damage reports from S. Wisconsin, NE Illinois, Central Iowa and Eastern Iowa.

    Lots of lightning over the big lake. The tv just went down so it should start pouring any minute. I hope all the campers are in their cars and not their tents.
