More severe weather possible Wednesday

May 16, 2017: Active weather Monday evening kicked off the week, with more on the way for the middle of the week. We are currently at a “2” on our Threattrack scale for Wednesday evening. We aren’t expecting widespread severe storms, but there may be a few stronger to severe storms tomorrow. Most of Wisconsin, Iowa, and western and northern Illinois are under the low risk for severe weather tomorrow.

As for timing, watch for a few scattered, hit-and-miss showers and storms in the middle to late morning hours, with a mainly dry afternoon. This is followed by an active evening where we could see more widespread storms. This evening round looks to be the one to focus on for severe weather.

Like on Monday, damaging winds and large hail look to be the main threats, followed by a lot of lightning.

Have your weather radios ready to go, and download the 13 Weather Authority app when you get the chance. The app not only provides severe weather alerts but you can see right where the storms are in your neighborhood using the interactive radar.
