The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for much of Wisconsin as storms roll in from Minnesota.
It says thunderstorms on Friday could become severe with damaging wind, hail and torrential rainfall.
Meteorologist Chris Franks says several Minnesota communities are experiencing flash flooding on Friday after the storms dropped 4 to 5 inches of rain in two to three hours in some spots.
