Wisconsin Weather Summary
National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI
200 AM CDT Wed May 17 2017

It was an active day especially across northern Wisconsin where a
few rounds of showers and thunderstorms took place. The most intense
of these came late in the afternoon in northwest Wisconsin where
severe storms erupted. A tornado touched down in Barron county late
in the afternoon. Highs ranged from the low to mid 70s in the north
to the low to mid 80s in the south. It was rather humid and it
turned quite windy in the south.

Rounds of showers and storms persisted across parts of northern
Wisconsin. Temperatures ranged from the upper 50s to low 60s in the
north to the low to mid 70s in the south.

An active pattern will continue today into tonight with several
rounds of showers and thunderstorms. A flash flood watch is in
effect for portions of northwest Wisconsin due to the combination of
heavy rainfall that has already occurred and what is expected. In
addition, a few of these storms could be strong to severe with large
hail and damaging winds possible.

The weather should quiet down for Thursday into Friday as high
pressure briefly moves through. Temperatures will cool off
considerably by Friday with afternoon highs only in the 50s.

The weekend looks wet and unsettled as another low pressure system
is expected to move slowly through the Great Lakes.
