Severe Storm Coverage
I was tracking that cluster of t'storms at 1pm in central Illinois and it quickly moved into SE Wisconsin by 2:40 and Milwaukee around 3:30pm with torrential rain and frequent and damaging winds up to 79 mph.
The wind damage is mainly confined around Waukesha and Jefferson Counties in Palmyra, Mukwonago and Eagle. Eagle had a wind gust of 79mph with a lot of wind damage...1 year to the date of the EF2 tornado that ripped through Eagle.
The rain was blinding add will not be surprised to see rain totals of 1-2" despite the storm moving so fast at 50 mph to the NNE.
I have to thank the entire crew for all their hard work during our 2 hours of continuous severe weather coverage...very impressive and smooth...Thank You!!
