Note: Last night’s severe weather event really didn’t pan out as expected, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing! Some parts of the Northland did have wind damage from the storms last night, and there may even have been a tornado early this morning east of Superior, around the Blueberry, Wisconsin area in northeast Douglas County, but for the most part the Northland dodged a bullet given the ingredients that were in place last night, certainly could have been a higher impact severe weather/wind event.

The good news with the storms from last night and early this morning is that we got more rain!
