This map hasn’t been blank since the one posted on Aug 7 at 2am EDT. It’s a nice break in the activity, but this isn’t the time to let your guard down if you live in an area that could be vulnerable to tropical systems. Still more than 2 months of hurricane season to go. (1 of 2)

A couple of tornadoes, damaging winds, and large hail will be possible this evening across extreme northern Wisconsin and western Upper Michigan.
