Severe Thunderstorm Watch issued for parts of Southern Wisconsin -Chris
Lightning will be prolific in any thunderstorm that goes up, even if it is not severe
MADISON, Wis. — A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued Thursday for areas west of Madison until 7 p.m. This is ahead of a round of strong to severe thunderstorms expected into the afternoon and evening.
The entire area is under a slight risk (level 2 out of 5) for severe storms into Thursday afternoon. The primary hazards of concern are high winds and hail, though an isolated spin up tornado can’t be ruled out.
Given the high dew points and moisture content to the atmosphere, heavy rainfall and localized flooding is also a concern.
Lightning will be prolific in any thunderstorm that goes up, even if it is not severe.
