Overview

Two rounds of severe storms hit north-central and northeast Wisconsin on June 11. High winds knocked down trees and caused some isolated structural damage.

The first line of severe storms formed in the Dakotas the night before and moved across Minnesota and into western Wisconsin during the morning before racing across the central and northeast part of the state during the middle of the day. 

The second batch of storms formed in the late afternoon across northwest Wisconsin and pushed into the north-central and far northeast part of the state.

The storms were a result of very warm and humid air interacting with a stalled frontal system across the region.
