UNDATED -- Wisconsin’s hot spell ended the usual way, with heavy thunderstorms in the southern part of the state. Winds gusted to 80-miles-an-hour near Beloit last night. A funnel cloud was spotted southwest of Madison, causing folks inside the State Capitol to head to the basement.

More hail fell in most of southwest Wisconsin. And in the southeast, 27,000 We Energies electric customers lost their power. Once the storms cleared out, the mercury plunged. It was in the 40’s-and-50’s in the northern half of the state at six this morning, while parts of southern Wisconsin remained in the 60’s. It’s a far cry from yesterday, when Milwaukee tied a record-high for the date with 93. In La Crosse, officials said the first eight days of June were the warmest since 1963, and the third-warmest ever.

Clear to partly cloudy skies are in the forecast for today, with highs 20-to-30-degrees cooler than yesterday. Parts of the north won’t get out of the 50’s, while the low-70’s are predicted in the south. More rain is due in tonight, with lows in the 40’s-and-50’s. A mostly dry weekend is in the statewide forecast for now, with highs generally in the 60’s-and-70’s.
