Stray Storms

This morning at 5am I was watching a thunderstorm complex roll through Minneapolis and La Crosse, Wisconsin. It was moving straight east. Since then this cluster of activity has made a bit of a right hand turn. The core of the widespread rain is still sitting to the north of us in Madison, but a few thunderstorms have popped up on the tail end. These storms are moving to the east at 25 mph. We could see a few thunderstorms in the next couple of hours, which could produce brief downpours.

One thing that is working in our favor is that this complex is moving into a much drier atmosphere away from the greatest instability. They should slowly weaken as they continue to move east. -ADAM

    We’re experiencing a thunderstorm with some moderate rain fall in Rockton right now.

    Did we see a little hook echo on that cell entering Green Co. at about 12:05?

    Interestingly, the Milwaukee radar site didn’t indicate that cell as rotating but the Quad Cities radar site did.

    It was trying to pull it around, but with the storm weakening by the minute it didn’t have much of a chance. The winds ahead of this complex changed to an easterly component and just brought in too much dry air to sustain the intensity.
