Tornado Season Heating Up

The typical severe weather season for Wisconsin starts to ramp up during the late Spring and early Summer!  The jetstream starts to move north and pulls up warm and humid air from the south.  

This past week SE WI experienced two separate severe weather events.  Most of the severe weather reports last night were damaging winds and hail.  There was a tornado warning for Walworth county; however, the NWS determined the tree damage in Walworth county was produced by 70 mph thunderstorm winds and not a tornado.

So far in 2017 Wisconsin has recorded 3 tornadoes.  The normal for the year is 23.  On average June is the month we typically record the most amount of tornadoes across the state.

Now is a great time to get your family ready.  Come up with a severe weather plan that your entire family can follow.
