Last day of summer promises to be on the wetter, stormier side
Sunday Morning Update...
While you were sleeping overnight, the National Weather Service added a few counties to the Flash Flood Watch in effect until 1 am Monday. Dodge, Washington, and Ozaukee Counties are now included. 1 to 2"+ of rainfall cannot be ruled out generally speaking. We could potentially see a few waves of heavy precipitation, morning, afternoon and evening into the overnight. Keep in mind this is tropical moisture we're dealing with, leading to the concern for steady, heavy rain at times. Stay tuned to CBS58 for the latest weather information. The weather looks better, by the way, for the start of Fall on Monday. But more rain and storms are possible by the middle and latter part of this week.
Saturday Evening Update...
So far, many of us have seen a good soaking rain today. But look for the intensity to pick up, especially into your Sunday. In fact, we could see several rounds of heavier rain and storms on Sunday, mainly as you wake up and during the afternoon. This should all wrap up into early Monday but not before dropping several inches of rain in spots. Again, keep an eye on water levels over the next few days. The Flash Flood Watch runs through Sunday, especially along and south of I-94.
Milwaukee (CBS58)—The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch from 7 pm Saturday until 1 am Monday across the southern half of the viewing area. Several inches of rain could fall. Make sure to keep an eye on water levels and be ready to seek higher ground if need be.
Rounds of showers and storms over the same general area could cause flooding in a matter of hours. The good news is we dry out for the start of Fall on Monday, but there’s more rain on the way for the middle and latter part of the upcoming week.
The entire CBS58 Ready Weather team is monitoring the situation and will keep you updated.
