When hailstones start resembling golf balls, you know you’re dealing with some powerful storms. That’s exactly what fell from the sky Monday across portions of Wisconsin and Iowa as severe storms rumbled through the area. The largest hailstones reached 2″ in diameter or roughly the size of a chicken egg. More potentially severe storms are expected Tuesday night.
Many of the same areas that were hit on Monday could see severe weather again late Tuesday evening through the overnight. Storms that develop will be capable of producing large hail and damaging winds. Heavy rain will also bring a threat for flash flooding.
This part of the country will stay active Wednesday with more severe storms possible from Wisconsin to Kansas. More heavy rain is possible Wednesday night across Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Widespread rain totals of 2-4″ are expected in the upper Midwest, but isolated areas could see half a foot or more of rain.
