Recapping Saturday’s Severe Weather

Beyond The Forecast
Lexi Gordon- Lake Winnebago near TJ’s Harbor in Oshkosh

The beginning to Father’s Day weekend started out relatively quiet with scattered downpours and a marginal risk for severe weather for most of the region. In the afternoon, showers and storms began to pick up.

Around 5:03 PM, a trained spotter reported seeing a tornado to the east of Winneconne and north of Lake Butte des Mores. A separate storm report just to the north reported a funnel cloud briefly present before going back into the wall cloud. At 5:17 PM, the National Weather Service then cancelled the tornado warning once the cell lost its rotation. No reports of damage were reported to the National Weather Service. Because of this no damage survey will take place and the tornado will have an EF-1 rating with winds from 65-85 mph. Unofficially this will be the seventh tornado reported in the state this year.

Lake Winnebago also saw at least one water spout separate from these tornado warned storms. Rotation appeared over the lake closer to 6 PM. A trained spotter a couple minutes later near Stockbridge reported seeing a funnel cloud likely from the same rotation that produced at least one water spout over the lake.
