Great Lakes Severe Weather Threat Thursday

27 Jun 2019, 11:54 am

Strong thunderstorms have been moving through the Upper Midwest and western Great Lakes this morning, and another round of severe storms is likely this afternoon and evening (Thursday). The Storm Prediction Center has a slight risk for severe storms in parts of  Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota and Illinois, with an enhanced risk in southern Wisconsin.


Damaging wind gusts greater than 60 mph are the biggest concern throughout the day. There is a low chance for large hail and tornadoes.


The morning thunderstorm complex of thunderstorms will diminish, but lead the way to another round of severe storms this afternoon and evening. Warm temperatures and increasing humidity will help to feed storm strength. An upper level disturbance at the Jet Stream level will keep storms firing well into the evening.
