WAUKESHA -- This November has been unusually warm -- and now, thunderstorms bring heavy rain, hail and strong winds to parts of southeast Wisconsin.
Storm reports indicate hail between a quarter-inch and half-inch has been spotted in Waukesha, Walworth and Ozaukee Counties. Heavy rain is also associated with this line of storms pressing through around mid-day Friday, November 18th.
Meanwhile, the National Weather Service has issued a wind ADVISORY for all of southeast Wisconsin to be in effect from 3:00 p.m. Friday until 6:00 p.m. Saturday.
A wind ADVISORY means that winds in excess of 35 m.p.h. are expected. Winds this strong can make driving difficult — especially for high-profile vehicles. Officials also say hunters heading out for opening day of deer hunting season should be alert for falling branches. Weak trees may even topple under the strong winds.
