Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog! Sunday was another big day for severe weather across the nation’s mid-section…from strong tornadoes in Missouri, to hail and strong winds here in Wisconsin, we saw it all.
Let’s start with the big picture…here is the SPC storm reports map from Sunday. Another big tornado number…46 and counting. A deadly tornado hit Joplin, MO…we will continue to follow this story on WISN 12 News in the coming days.
Close to home on Sunday, strong winds were associated with thunderstorms. Below are the wind reports from around the area. Most of these winds were measured, including the Milwaukee Mitchell Airport gust.

The strong winds in Sheboygan county blew this playground equipment over. This picture was from Beth Heinen of Gibbsville.
Another aspect of the severe storms was hail. Quarter to golf ball size hail fell in Palmyra. This picture shows quarter size hail and was posted to the U-Local section of WISN.com. A thank you to user ‘llbartallota’.
Hail also dropped out of storms near Lake Mills. U-Local user ‘angelamarie’ posted this picture of quarter size hail.
If you have a picture of hail or any other weather related picture, please post it to the U-Local section of WISN.com
Better news in the Monday forecast, just a few spotty showers, but no severe weather expected. Much cooler weather will return to the region on Tuesday, highs lakeside back into the 50s. Warmer weather will return for the upcoming holiday weekend.
Make sure to watch WISN 12 News for more on Sunday’s severe weather.
Have a great day!
