MARQUETTE COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A tornado touched down early Saturday evening in parts of Marquette County in south central Wisconsin. 

The county's emergency management department reports a three-mile stretch of damage in the Endeavor and Packwaukee areas. 

The National Weather Service said a roof partially collapsed. Siding was ripped off a building. A tree fell on a car and a house. And farm buildings were leaning. 

Officials said there was debris on roadways close to Interstate 39 near the exits at Highways 23 and 82. There were no reports of injuries. 

Other parts of Wisconsin got heavy rains during the final day of a massive October storm in the nation's mid-section. 

Western Wisconsin had the most rain by far yesterday -- up to 4.1 inches at Galesville. Kenosha had 1.75 inches. Winchester in far north central Wisconsin had an inch-and-a-half. Waukesha was among the places with street flooding. 

Three waves of thunderstorms went through the Badger State Saturday. Lingering showers are in the forecast on and off for Sunday, with cooler highs in the 50's. 

Skies are expected to clear up Monday, with dry weather expected all week. It's supposed to warm up around mid-week, with 70 degree weather returning on Wednesday.
