A few dry days after the rain and wind of Monday

NOW: A few dry days after the rain and wind of Monday

The rain, wind and generally gloominess from Sunday into Monday is done. We had a really good soaking rain for most of southeast Wisconsin. And the biggest rain totals came in the most drought stressed areas: Walworth, Racine Kenosha, southern Waukesha and Milwaukee. Rain totals really decreased north of I-94 with only a tenth or two of rain for our northern communities.

The rain in Milwaukee now puts us above average on rainfall for the month of October with 2.88" of rain so far this month. We should stay above-average through the last few days of the month especially with another rain chance later in the week. 

An isolated lake effect rain shower can't be ruled out Tuesday but otherwise both Tuesday and Wednesday look pretty dry. Another good chance for showers is setting up for Thursday, mainly in the afternoon/evening, through Friday.

Along with all of the rain Sunday into Monday, we also had a lot of wind. Waves over Lake Michigan were topping 10 feet! The strongest wind gusts were in our southeast lakeside areas from 44 to 51 mph. The wind decreased a little the farther west you went.
