The National Weather Service has released preliminary damage from storms that passed through southern Wisconsin during the late evening and early morning hours of June 16 - 17, 2014.
According to the NWS, two tornadoes struck the Grant County city of Platteville.
Platteville Tornado #1: Damage on the UW-Platteville campus. Preliminary information is a "low-end" EF2 tornado with 120 mph max wind speed. Track was about two miles west of Platteville, running through the UW Platteville campus, to two miles southeast of Platteville ending right before U.S. Highway 151. The EF2 damage occurred near the Engineering buildings on the UW Platteville campus.
Platteville Tornado #2: Damage near the Platteville Golf and Country Club. Preliminary information is a "high-end" EF1 tornado with 105 mph max wind speed. Track was about 1/2 mile long with a 50 yard width. Damage includes some trees knocked down and a roof off an apartment. A survey team continues to investigate the storm which caused extensive damage in the Dane County community of Verona.
MILWAUKEE (AP) - The National Weather Service says there's a good chance Wisconsin will see at least one tornado this week.
The National Weather service says a tornado before 6 p.m. Tuesday would give Wisconsin its sixth latest start since record keeping began. After that, the state would move into one of the top five slots.
The latest start to a Wisconsin tornado season since the weather service began tracking such details in 1950 was in 1995. A tornado didn't touch down until 6:15 p.m. on June 28, 1995.
The weather service says there is a risk of severe weather Monday night through Wednesday, and Wisconsin is likely to see a tornado during that time.
