Severe Weather of September 4-5, 2012


Rainfall Totals Storm Photos Local Storm Reports

Storms developed rapidly on the afternoon of Tuesday, September 4th across parts of western Wisconsin and southeast Minnesota.  They produced sporadic large hail as they continued to grow, expand in coverage area, and moved into northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin.  Hail over 2 inches in diameter was reported with stronger storms along with localized wind gusts ranging from 60 to 75 mph.

TORNADO INFORMATION (EF2):  As storms moved into southwest Wisconsin, at least one tornado formed in northwest Grant County, Wisconsin.  Damage was near Bloomington, WI to one property, which included a barn, trees, some outbuildings, and damage to the house.  Preliminary rating on the short-lived tornado is EF2 with winds estimated at 115-120 mph.  The tornado lasted approx. 6 minutes from 7:37 to 7:43 p.m. CDT according to video and phone calls to the county dispatch center.

Heavy rain was also reported but flooding was minimal.  Rainfall amounts ranged from only an inch in some areas to as much as 3-4 inches over parts of northeast Iowa into far southwest Wisconsin.  The terrain in the region typically enhances the flood threat but because 2012 had been such a dry summer, many areas could handle the heavy rain.

In addition, a second area of thunderstorms developed over eastern South Dakota by mid evening which progressed east and prompted additional warnings for strong thunderstorm winds into the early morning hours of Wednesday, Sept.5th.  These secondary storms mainly produced strong wind gusts in addition to more heavy rain.  Wind gusts hit 55 mph at the Rochester International Airport.
