Severe storms produced a couple of tornadoes across the Midwest Thursday afternoon and evening. A tornado did form and stay on the ground in Wisconsin however, enough to damage a few homes in Green and Rock counties. This was the state's FIRST-EVER February tornado warning and February tornado. In fact, the damage was rated as an EF-2! Hail was widespread across the region, with mostly smaller hail, but some stones reached the size of golf balls in Waukesha, WI. A brief spin-up occurred in Illinois but caused no reported damage.
The storm system that spurred the severe storms on Thursday has moved north into Canada, but a trailing Rockies low is impacting the Mid-South and Midwest overnight. Isolated storms produced gusty winds and hail damage in Arkansas Friday afternoon, and there was even a tornado warning as well. Overnight as the front runs in to warm and humid air, additional isolated severe storms are possible from northeast Texas into the Midwest.
While the main severe threats are gusty winds and hail, a brief tornado can't be ruled out from Little Rock to Evansville, Indiana.
