The threat for severe weather is climbing for Tuesday. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed much of Wisconsin in an Enhanced Risk (severe level 3 out of 5 or "possible") for severe storms.
Cities such as Milwaukee, Madison, Kenosha, Racine, Wausau, Burlington, Green Bay, Oshkosh, Appleton, Middleton, Oconomowoc, Muskego and every city in between should closely monitor these storms.
All types of severe weather are possible on Tuesday afternoon and evening.
The main threats will be damaging straight-line winds that could exceed 70 mph.
Heavy rain (1-2 inches with some local higher amounts) will increase the risk for localized flash flooding.
In addition, large hail (greater than an inch in diameter) and isolated tornadoes cannot be eliminated from the equation.
Thunderstorms will develop by mid-afternoon to late afternoon over portions of SW Wisconsin.
Thunderstorms will build and progress through the state by late afternoon to early evening. The main window for severe weather will likely be between the hours of 6 p.m. and midnight.
However, some early thunderstorm development is possible for portions of northwestern Wisconsin.
The risk for severe weather will slowly diminish after midnight as storms slide over the Lake Michigan.
