Strong Storms & Hail Pictures

***Watch WISN 12 News for a live look at the Doppler 12 Radar Network!***

Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 Blog.  Right on cue isolated showers and thunderstorms developed across southeast Wisconsin on Saturday afternoon.

The little disturbance that we highlighted in yesterday’s blog was overhead during the afternoon.  This will continue a chance of storms into the evening hours.  But overnight into Sunday morning looks dry. 

Until then, expect heavy downpours, gusty winds, and small hail in the strongest storms.  Some pea to penny size hail has been reported.  While storms hit some areas, others will keep sunshine all evening long!  Best chance of storms will be north of Milwaukee, but really anyone could see an quick storm.

Below is some of the small hail that has fallen out of the storms.  This picture from Katie Kissinger of Kewaskum shows the result of 10 minutes of pea size hail.

Another hail picture shows the flowers with some company in the pot…a layer of hail.

The next picture shows the storm inflow(what some may confuse as a funnel or other scary looking cloud).  The inflow looks like a tail and is where warm/moist air is flowing into the storm.  Also of note, over the buildings you can see a hail core.  This is where dime size hail was falling late Saturday afternoon.

When a Severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued for Fond du Lac county Saturday afternoon, we were the first to show you where the storm was, the threats, and cities in its path on WISN 12 News.  Make sure to keep WISN 12 on this weekend  in case any storms turn severe.

Below is a snapshot of the radar around 4:30 p.m. Saturday.  This is when hail was falling in Kewaskum in northern Washington county.
