Severe thunderstorm watch issued

The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for much of Wisconsin, including Kenosha County.

The watch is set to be in effect until 2 a.m.

The message from the NWS about what to expect is a little mixed.

The latest, local forecast is calling for “showers and thunderstorms before 2 am, then showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm between 2am and 3am, then a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 3 am. Some of the storms could be severe and produce heavy rainfall. Low around 72. South wind 5 to 10 mph becoming west after midnight. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New rainfall amounts between three quarters and one inch possible.”

A hazardous weather outlook issued before the watch seems a bit more concerning: “Severe thunderstorms will be possible with damaging winds as the main concern. Large hail and a tornado are possible as well.”

We will let you know if more clarity comes to the outlook.

Boy raises money for firefighters; gets VIP treatment at Salem Lakes Fire Station #1

Like a lot of kids, Wesley Rivera, 3, wanted to have a lemonade stand at his Salem Lakes home.

Perhaps less common, was what Wesley did with the proceeds. He decided to donate it to the firefighter/paramedics of Salem Lakes Fire/Rescue.

On Monday, Wesley, accompanied by his father Zak Rivera, delivered the funds to the firefighters at Fire Station No. 1 in Trevor.

Wesley rarely spoke above a whisper during the visit, as looked to be taking in everything in the station with every glance, but Zak said he has an interest in firefighters and wants to be a fire truck driver someday

Wesley’s interest was emphasized by the 3-year-old sized turnout gear he wore to the fire station. Upon seeing Wesley’s gear, one of the firefighters good naturedly remarked “kinda of hot for turnout gear” on a day where the temperature topped 90.

Interim Chief James Lejcar accepted the donation and topped off Wesley’s gear with a junior firefighter helmet. Lejcar said Wesley collected about $85.

Lejcar and other firefighters showed Wesley and Zak around the station. Wesley was able to go into an ambulance and got a close-up look at a fire boat.

Wesley and Zak also got to go for a spin in one of the department’s engines. A firefighter explained to Wesley the difference between a fire engine (holds and pumps water) and a fire truck (carries ladders). Afterwards, he got to sit behind the wheel of the engine.

Zak said Wesley has had some exposure to emergency workers. One of Zak’s grandfathers was a police officer and the other a volunteer firefighter. A neighbor is a Waukegan firefighter.

“This is our future,” Lejcar said of Wesley as the visit ended.

Kerkman said she also had recognized Antonio’s father, Ray, in 2002, after he achieved Eagle Scout rank.
