Severe Weather Tips
Before Severe Weather Occurs
It is important for you to know that the term SEVERE WEATHER is defined as hail stones 1 inch in diameter or larger, winds at 58 miles per hour or higher, or a tornado.

Any thunderstorm may cause damage, or injury, and does not have to be classified as severe.

Lightning is a significant hazard during thunderstorms.

Heavy Rain may also occur during thunderstorms.

It is also important to know the differences between a "Watch" and a "Warning". The NWS has posted a short You Tube video titled: FAQ: What's a Watch that helps explain the differences.

The National Weather Service has a Thunderstorm, Tornado, and Lighting Preparedness Guide that explains various severe weather hazards and preparedness actions you should take.
Be alert to local weather forecasts so that you know if/when thunderstorms are forecasted for your area.

Calumet County is served by the National Weather Service Office in Green Bay, WI.

The NWS Green Bay website provides a wealth of forecast and weather information.

The Weather Picture gives you a snapshot of current expected weather conditions.
