Much Needed Rain and Storms Return
We are in need of much needed rainfall across southeastern Wisconsin. The last measurable rain in Milwaukee was recorded on September 8th! The below normal rain has prompted abnormally dry conditions to return across the area. At this point, any measurable rain could help, and it looks like some will return by Wednesday evening.
Temperatures on Wednesday are expected to climb back into the lower 80s with an increase in the humidity. Warmer temps and humidity should help to provide fuel for showers and storms by Wednesday night.
Scattered storms are in the forecast, and some could produce small hail and gusty winds. The SPC has our area under a marginal risk for some strong storms; however, widespread severe weather is not anticipated.
Rainfall totals will likely range between a tenth to an inch. If you get stuck under a storm, some locally higher amounts are possible.
We will need the rain with building heat throughout the rest of the week. There's a chance that we get very close to 90 by the weekend.
