Summary:

Radar Loop

Radar loop from about 1 pm to 9 pm July 25 2013. 

A cold front moved south to the Interstate 90 corridor during the early afternoon of July 25, 2013.  As temperatures rose into the lower 80s, there was enough instability for strong to severe thunderstorms to develop.  These thunderstorms produced widespread rainfall to the I-90 corridor and south, as well as severe hail across parts of Fillmore and Houston counties in southeast Minnesota and La Crosse County in west-central Wisconsin.  Hail stone sizes ranged from quarters to tennis balls!

Radar Loop - La Crosse

Radar loop from about 230 pm to 320 pm showing the hail storm to affect areas north of La Crosse, WI (large hail=pinks).
