NWS confirms 3 tornadoes late Sunday in southern Wisconsin

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - A funnel cloud was spotted north of Wausau Tuesday evening.

It didn't touch down, but it still marked the fourth day in the last five in which Wisconsin had at least some type of tornadic activity.

The National Weather Service reported no storm damage where Tuesday night's twister was spotted -- and the Wisconsin Public Service utility reported no power outages in the Wausau area Wednesday morning.

The same cannot be said for southeast Wisconsin, where almost 5,400 We Energies are still in the dark after high winds on Monday. The utility expects everyone to have their power back by Wednesday night.

Meanwhile, the Weather Service now confirms 3 tornadoes in Iowa and Dane counties late Sunday night. Two twisters landed at the same time north and northwest of Dodgeville at 10:30 p.m. Both were rated F-2's, causing numerous building and tree damage.

Wednesday morning, Wisconsin Power and Light reported 140 customers still without electricity in Iowa County.

An F-1 tornado landed north of Oregon in Dane County just before 11:30 p.m. Sunday, causing heavy tree damage.

Forecasters say southern Wisconsin will get more scattered rain showers Wednesday.
