Latest start to Wisconsin's tornado season since 1997

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin has had 55-below wind chills, two foot snowstorms, and four inch rainstorms this year.  

But one thing we have not seen yet is a confirmed tornado.  

The National Weather Service says it's the latest start to a tornado season since 1997, when it took until June 15th for a twister to find its way to the ground in the Badger State -- that being near Downsville in Dunn County.  

The Weather Service also says this year is the 9th-latest without a tornado in 64 years of keeping records of this.  

The latest tornado to start a calendar year came in 1995, when a twister landed at Onalaska in La Crosse County on June 28th.  

Forecasters say the threat of severe weather looks minimal this week -- so by this weekend, 2014 could be in the Top 5 for the state's latest first tornado.
