Severe Thunderstorm Warning Issued

Milwaukee, Waukesha and Walworth counties could see high winds, hail associated with storms.

We've been bracing for a big change in temperatures today, but the approaching cold front is also setting off a line of storms, and some have become severe. The National Weather Service has posted warnings for the following counties until 4 p.m. Monday:

Southern Milwaukee County
Southern Waukesha County
Walworth County

The storms could pack a punch, including winds reaching 60 m.p.h. and as large as quarter-size hail.

After the line moves through the state, temperatures are expected to plummet from the mid 70s to about 60, with lows tonight expected in the 40s.

I was flashing my chimney and shingling my roof when the rain drove me down -- about 1:30 PM. We never got any thunderstorms though.

That's what I love/hate about these warnings. Initially they stressed the southern portion of these counties, but really it was the central to northern portions that saw damage. Strange weather.

45 minutes of rain and we were shin deep in it out in the street in front of our house. At least we'll have something specific to discuss at the "Big Sewer Meeting" on Wednesday night.

Like, 'we need a bigger sewer!'
