WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) Two bands of thunderstorms rumbled through Wisconsin yesterday, causing at least some damage. The Wisconsin Rapids area had up to tennis-ball-sized hail early in the day. A storage shed flipped over and some trees fell in Arpin, almost 15 miles northwest of Rapids.
The second band of storms went through yesterday afternoon.
Jackson in Washington County had winds close to 50-miles-an-hour, causing a large tree branch to fall at West Bend. Sheboygan had one-inch hail. Parts of far northeast Wisconsin had small hail. Some areas of Wisconsin had more than a half-inch of rain.
After the storms cleared out, cooler air moved in from the north. Parts of northern Wisconsin dropped into the mid-40's as of four this morning. A dry and pleasant day is in store for most of the Badger State, with highs in the 70's under clear to partly cloudy skies.
