Drought buster rain! 1 to 2 inches expected into Saturday
Keep in mind that Milwaukee has only seen 2.54” of rain since July 22nd; that’s over six inches below the normal for rainfall. U.S. Drought Monitor continues to show a moderate drought for parts of the viewing area. This soaking rain occurring over a 24-48 hours is exactly what the doctor ordered! Rainfall totals could easily exceed 1 to 2 inches, with some localized higher amounts.
Rain begins to taper off by Saturday. Computer models have been struggling with the end period of the rain because of the evolution of this storm. Some have it ending Saturday morning whileothers have Saturday staying soggy. The way the trend is, it is looking like Saturday could be a washout. Sunday improves with sunshine and highs in the mid 70s.
