Isolated showers north. Rain/t-storm southeast today. Heavy rain is possible. Ending around sunset.
WIWX ALERTS - I don't push SMS/EMAIL message for EVERY UPDATE. Some things don't need to be sent out, less important, or redundant. Also I have to ability to target message sends by county; if you don't have a saved location in that specific county - you won't get the message. I'm open to suggestions. Perhaps we could add an entire domain distribution list...if you're on it; you'd get everything posted regardless of location or importance. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
TS Cristobal entering final phase, will end overnight. Heavy rain across the north atm. Reports of 4"+ in SE MN, NE IA and similar amounts could fall into the Eau Claire region.
Rainfall estimates coming in right on target. Several reports in the 4-5" range west of La Crosse. We'll see if those numbers translate up into the Eau Claire region as well. Still raining in the north. Scattered showers Weds PM will help boost totals in the eastern half of WI.
Here it comes. Heavy rain approaching western WI from the south. Flash Flood Watch until 7:00AM tomorrow.

MONTHLY FORECASTS - are back by popular demand and updated today through AUG. A few small improvements to go along with it. MAY did not go well so please remember the methods used are experimental.
STORM FORECASTS are now FREE to view to everyone again! Still need to be a member to receive alert messages. I've definitely gone back and forth over this. Lately I feel like opening it up might be the best thing for everyone.
Elbow hurts and swelled up yesterday while typing at the desk. Tendonitis or minor tear probably. I'm fine. It's risky in the office! Need to get into more Tornado Warnings and stop this dangerous behavior!
Remember that niche. Remember what got you here. It's easy to lose focus when times are slow. When the weather is wild it makes it all worth it. Patience.
Storm event coming to an end. Satisfying chase, generally feel like I accomplished what I set out to do. Everything mostly went the way it was supposed to. Tomorrow will wrap up the footage into a video. Nothing amazing. Migraine all day today, need to sleep it off. Talk to you soon.
Development taking place now. Interesting evolution with cluster coming southeast out of Minneapolis region. New development near La Crosse as expected. How exactly these pieces come together is uncertain/ interesting...but it does central WI will almost certainly see a severe storm this evening.
