Northeast Wisconsin Sets Record For Lack of Severe Weather

The National Weather Service office in Green Bay, Wisconsin reported on July 21 that northeast Wisconsin has set a 30-year record for the longest streak without severe weather during the usual season from late spring through early fall:
It has been nearly thirteen weeks since the last report of severe weather in the NWS Green Bay service area (22 counties of northeast and central Wisconsin). On April 24, scattered storms produced large hail and damaging winds in north-central and far northeast Wisconsin. Based on 30 years of severe weather reports (observations of 1 inch or larger hail, damaging wind gusts near 60 mph or greater, or tornadoes), this is the longest period during the northeast Wisconsin severe weather season (late spring through early fall) without severe weather. June and July are usually the most active severe weather months in this part of Wisconsin. In fact, there has never been a July without at least one report of severe weather in northeast and central Wisconsin.
