West Bend Hail Video & Another Wet Day

***Watch WISN 12 News for the latest radar updates***

Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog.  Severe Thunderstorms rolled through parts of Dodge, Washington, Ozaukee, and Sheboygan counties Tuesday evening.  The severe weather that was reported was mainly hail.  Here is a list of the reports.

  • West Bend: Dime to Quarter Size Hail
  • Jackson: 54 mph Measured Wind Gust
  • Lowell & Reeseville(Dodge County): Penny Size Hail

We were the only station with a crew in West Bend when the Severe Thunderstorm raced through around 9:30 p.m.  Here is the video of the heavy rain and small hail that I showed on WISN 12 News Tuesday evening.

For Wednesday keep the umbrella handy, there will be periods of rain showers throughout the day.  Still not out of the question for some areas to pick up another half to one inch of rain.  Temperatures will be chilly…in the 40s for highs Wednesday.  And yes, as I mentioned on the clip above, wet snow may end this storm system on Thursday morning.

The map below is from the 00Z GFS for early Thursday.  The blue line near Milwaukee is the 540 thickness line.  This line often in the winter signals the changeover line to snow.  As cold air wraps in to the storm, a mix or wet snow may occur early Thursday.  Something we will be tracking on WISN 12 News and also in the blog!

Thanks for reading the blog and have a great day.  If you have a rain total or storm report to share, please post it to the comments section of the blog.

  1. Maybe an inch of snow yuck. Well that is spring weather in Wisconsin. At least we will be in the 60’s again soon.

  2. 0.82 inches of rain in Sheboygan(as of 3:30)
    More rain falling now, so totals will be increasing

    • Another damp day. I think almost all areas for this storm are now over 1″.


  3. Watched the video. Nice work.
