Steady moderate rain expected Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning
Rain has returned to southeast Wisconsin. Showers stared rolling in around 10 or 11 PM Monday night with light showers continuing during the morning commute. The rain so far hasn't amounted to much with all of southeast Wisconsin seeing less than a tenth of an inch. Light showers will be likely through midday Tuesday then heavy and steady rain arrives. The steady rain will likely make for a wet walk home from school this afternoon and a wet evening commute.
The rain will likely stay steady and moderate Tuesday night before wrapping up right around sunrise Tuesday morning. Rain totals for most of southeast Wisconsin look to be in the 0.50-1.00" range by the time it is done.
Going into Tuesday's rain most of southeast Wisconsin has a rain deficit for the month of October. Milwaukee has only picked up 0.81" of rain this month. We are still above-average for the fall season thanks to a wet September and are running about a half inch above-average on rain for the year.
