Storm Risk in the Upper Midwest

30 May 2021, 7:19 pm

As we’re getting into the thick of Memorial Day weekend a few areas into Wisconsin/UP Michigan (Memorial Day) may see some marginally severe storms. Afternoon heating ahead of a frontal boundary will help bring in the chance for a few isolated thunderstorms in the forecast ahead. The area is not particularly charged to see significant storms but some strong gusts, hail, and lightning will be likely.

Monday Outlook

As temperatures warm up Memorial Day afternoon in Wisconsin, heating will help bring in the potential for a few severe thunderstorms in the late afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has also issued a marginal risk, a level 1 out of 5, for severe thunderstorms.

For Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan a few stronger thunderstorms are expected into the afternoon and early evening. Otherwise, storms slow down after nightfall.
