0.50”-1.00” of Rain Possible into Wednesday Morning

This month has started better in the rain department, but the region is still in need of rain. Since July 22nd, Milwaukee is 6.01” below average for rainfall. This deficit has kept parts of the viewing area under a “moderate drought” from the U.S. Drought Monitor.

An area of low pressure is expected to track northeast and throw more rain in the gauges. Precipitation is expected to start from south to north as early as this afternoon. The heaviest downpours will occur late this evening and overnight tonight. Totals could exceed 1.00” along the border. The farther north you live or travel in the viewing area, the lesser amounts.

The rain should end from west to east then by early Wednesday morning. Thunderstorms are not expected, but a clap of thunder or two is possible. More rain is expected by the weekend.
