During the afternoon and evening of June 15, 2022, severe thunderstorms developed along a cold front in western Wisconsin and tracked eastward across the state. Many storms were severe and a few produced tornadoes in western and northeast Wisconsin. These thunderstorms created a swath of wind damage that extended from northeast Iowa all the way into northeast Wisconsin. As the storms moved into southeastern Wisconsin they slowed down and brought heavy rainfall. 

Our NWS damage survey determined that winds in the hardest hit areas in Marquette County were straightline winds around 90 to 105 mph. Winds in Dane, Columbia and Dodge counties were straightline and estimated to be around 70 mph. Several other areas across southern Wisconsin had damage as the result of winds around 50 to 70 mph.

Below is a summary of the event for areas in southern Wisconsin within the jurisdiction of the Milwaukee/Sullivan Weather Service Office.
