Wednesday on Lake Effect: Storm Chasing, Calatrava Café, Boundary Waters

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

Is this week’s cool weather really a relative of the polar vortex that gripped the region last winter? And how is a chilly Lake Michigan impacting our weather? Later, some insight into storm spotting and storm chasing in Wisconsin. Then, we’ll go behind the scenes, and learn how the café at the Milwaukee Art Museum plans its menu to match the art upstairs. And a Waukesha writer looks back on years of family canoe trips to the Boundary Waters.
