Milwaukee, WI – A line of strong to severe thunderstorms is expected to move across southern Wisconsin late tonight, bringing potential hazards including strong straight-line winds and heavy rainfall. The National Weather Service (NWS) in Milwaukee/Sullivan issued an alert indicating that the storms are likely to develop along the Wisconsin-Minnesota border this evening and track southeast overnight.

According to the NWS, the most significant threat will be damaging winds, particularly along and south of Highway 29. The timing of the storm’s impact is projected between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., with the earliest effects felt in western Wisconsin and the latest in southeastern areas, including Milwaukee and Racine.

Additionally, another round of rainfall is expected tonight, which could exacerbate already saturated soils from recent heavy rains. This could lead to urban and small stream flooding, with the highest rainfall totals anticipated north and west of Madison.
