The National Weather Service has put just about the entire state in an area of slight risk for severe storms. This classification in terms of severity is a 2 out of 5, but still needs to be taken seriously. Severe potential in slight risk zones are generally scattered and short-lived, but the threat for intense isolated storms still remains.

Future radar continues to favor the development of a squall line as this system approaches. Typically, with a squall line, damaging winds and hail are the most impactful storm characteristics, but quick spin-up tornadoes are still possible. Overall, in southeast Wisconsin, we'll be watching for a medium to low severe threat for our region.
