Storms produce hail, wind and rain

Posted:

Monday's scattered storms did produce some very strong winds and even hail in some parts of Central Wisconsin.

Pea sized hail rained down in the Town of Rock Falls, just north of Merrill early Monday afternoon. The storm moved in quickly with brief spurts of downpours.

The storm did produce some very strong winds that blew leaves and small branches across the road. The weather did affect traffic for a little while. Some cars pulled over to the side of the road because visibility was so low.

But, despite the storms there have not been any reports of damage. Several sheriff's deputies from surrounding counties say things have been pretty quiet.

All though the worst of the storm is expected to be over, authorities are still reminding people to take it slow. The earlier down pours have flooded some roads and that can make driving difficult and dangerous.
