Thunderstorms moving across southern Wisconsin

Posted:

SULLIVAN, Wis. (AP) -- A line of thunderstorms packing heavy rain and high winds is spreading across southern Wisconsin.

Storms were breaking out late Wednesday afternoon in the southwest corner of Wisconsin.

National Weather Service meteorologist Sarah Marquardt says a line of storms is stretching toward the south-central portion of the state and also moving eastward toward Lake Michigan.

Tornado warnings were issued for several southwestern Wisconsin counties, but no actual tornadoes were sighted. Marquardt says the strong thunderstorms are capable of producing tornadoes.

In Richland County, a wind gust estimated at 60 mph was reported around 4:30 p.m. in Port Andrew.

Street flooding was reported in parts of the village of Boscobel in Grant County.
