Tornado watches and warnings this afternoon starting at 1 p.m. part of test

The five National Weather Service offices that service Wisconsin will conduct a test of the tornado watch and warning codes today.

A test tornado watch will be issued at 1 p.m. Test tornado warnings will be issued at 1:45 p.m., which should be followed by a sounding of the warning sirens. Both will expire at 2 p.m.

On some alert systems the watches and warnings may appear to be real if the words “test” are not seen.

    Wow, thank goodness for! I had no idea this was going on today and just flew down 4 flights of stairs while carrying my 3 and 4 year old boys! Guess I should’ve checked here before I started running…. There’s my workout for the day!
