Severe Storm Potential Mainly Wisconsin. NWS Doppler radar at 5:01 PM shows heavy showers and T-storms over southeastern Minnesota, but the greatest severe risk (hail and damaging straight-line winds) is from Durand to Eau Claire to Tomah, Wisconsin, deeper into the hot, sticky, 70-degree dew point air. Radar shows light showers over the southeast metro, but I expect a gradual clearing trend metro-wide by 7 PM or so. Here is the latest warning (Wisconsin):
