News/Events/Other

  • Be aware of summertime hazards:
    • Heat waves can be deadly even in Wisconsin, claiming more lives during the last two decades than any other weather-related event. Wisconsin Heat Awareness Day will be observed on Thursday, 13 June 2013.
    • Wisconsin, along with the rest of the nation, observes Lightning Awareness Week from 23 to 29 June 2013.
    • Since Wisconsin borders on two of the Great Lakes, rip currents can pose a hazard to swimmers. The National Weather Service Offices in the Great Lakes States have joined with those along the Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific coasts in issuing rip current threat information when appropriate. The Milwaukee-Sullivan Forecast Office will participate in  Rip Current Awareness Week (2-8 June 2013).
