Tornado confirmed in Marquette County, strength yet to be determined

MARQUETTE COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - The National Weather Service confirms that a tornado touched down in parts of Marquette County during the weekend. 

But WKOW-TV in Madison says officials must still analyze damage photos and reports before determining an EF rating. 

By all indications, the twister was relatively weak. The Weather Service said it was too sporadic to show up on its radar, and dozens of homeowners told WKOW they were caught off guard. 

The Weather Service said there were multiple reports of funnel clouds in the Endeavor and Packwaukee areas early Saturday evening -- and the storms caused a three-mile path of damage. 

A tree fell onto a car, and several roofs were damaged along with numerous trees, an empty house, and some farm buildings. Nobody was hurt.  

The tornado was the signature event in Wisconsin from a massive early October storm that hit the nation's mid-section. 

Tornadoes also touched down in Nebraska and Iowa, and more than a foot of snow came down in South Dakota. 

Monday morning, the Weather Service said far southeast Wisconsin still had a few lingering showers -- but most of the rain cleared out Sunday.

Heavy amounts fell throughout the state. Galesville in Trempealeau County had more than four inches on Saturday. 

A dry week is forecast. Highs in the 60's are expected Monday. 70 degree readings could return Tuesday.
