The Lake Maria tornado, which was moving at an estimated 175-200 km / h, actually merged with a second, more powerful tornado south of the same location. The third tornado was stronger and was on the ground for about an hour and a half, according to the National Weather Service.

The weather started to change as we approached the Chicago area and we had to adjust our route stops a few times as bad weather was waiting for us southwest of Chicago in Dekalb. We are equipped with ADS-B weather and have a good picture of what lies ahead.
The week before, we observed warm, humid, unstable air coming in from the north, along with cooler air coming in from Wisconsin. A powerful gust line has formed and is pushing south into central Wisconsin as all hell breaks loose. It is not far away and there is a good chance of thunderstorms in the form of squalls, thunderstorms and heavy rain.
A southerly supercell, flying in from the extreme southern Sauk County, made a partial right turn and headed south, toward the west, whirling 2 tornadoes into the air. The Dodge County tornado moved south into Dodge Co. and then north into Green Lake County. This southern supercell eventually turned into a tornado in south-central Jefferson County, moving from north to central Walworth County and from south to east into Fond du Lac County, while a second tornado was on its way east. That tornado left Green Lake County by itself and moved southeast to Fort Lauderdale, then south and west to Green Bay.
