Damaging storms Wednesday night, more coming Thursday

We escaped the severe thunderstorm activity Wednesday night with many reports of damage coming out of Grant and Richland Counties in Southwest Wisconsin. Hardest hit was the Jellystone Camp near Bagley, Wisconsin, along the Mississippi River. A tornado was reported near Richland Center, Wisconsin. These photos show the extent of the damage, along with some breathtaking views of the storm structure.

Heading into Thursday afternoon, there will be boundaries left over from the storms the night before. These will be the focus for storm development into the afternoon. Plenty of heat and humidity, along with a disturbance coming in from the southwest should be enough to get storms going. The storm motion will be from the southwest to northeast with the highest likelihood for storms around the Quad Cities, points southwest. THREATRACKStill, with a few tornadoes reported in Iowa and Wisconsin Wednesday night, we must remain weather-aware on Thursday. Have a plan in place if you need to get to shelter quickly Thursday! Threatrack-2 for Thursday for large hail, damaging wind, and isolated tornadoes. -Eric
