ONALASKA, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) Parts of Wisconsin were hit with more hail and torrential rains yesterday. Baseball-sized hail fell in Onalaska, just north of La Crosse. The National Weather Service said a large tree trunk split and fell onto a mini-van in Onalaska. Nearby Stueben had an-inch-and-quarter of rain. So did Gile in Iron County, where an inch fell in less than a half-hour early last evening. Gile also reported quarter-sized hail. Small hail also came down in Marshfield and Auburndale.
The Weather Service blamed it all on a low-pressure system moving into western Lake Superior. A cold front is expected to drag eastward through the Upper Midwest today, with more rain possible. A dense fog advisory is in effect until noon along Lake Superior in Douglas, Bayfield, Ashland, and Iron counties.
Cloudy skies and below-normal temperatures are expected for the weekend. Highs for tomorrow might not reach 60 in parts of northern Wisconsin. The 70’s are not expected to return until Monday.
