After our morning round of storms, we're back to sunshine and warm temperatures as a warm front approaches. Building instability is triggering additional storms, some have been severe.At this time Dodge, southern fringe portions of Fond du Lac, Jefferson and Washington counties are under warning until 1:45pm. Downpours, lightning and gusty winds accompany these cells, but the greatest threat is large hail. Reports of hail to around one inch have fallen in the Beaver Dam area. Although we're already seeing a weakening trend with the hail, storms will still be around through late afternoon.
