A Soggy Earth Day Followed By Heat

NOW: A Soggy Earth Day Followed By Heat

It's a soggy day across the area. Rain showers have been with us since early on and will continue until around midnight tonight. Check out how much rain we've already received:

 The rain moving through is out ahead of an approaching warm front from the south. And look how it will impact temps tomorrow: 
 If we do reach the 80s it will be the first time this year! And the first time since October 2nd at 83 degrees. In fact, we're not too far from the record high tomorrow at 85 going back to 1960. But on this Earth day the city holds its hottest April temperature ever recorded at 91 degrees. That was set in 1980.

This Earth day is all about the rain. Totals will reach three-quarters to a full inch for places like Milwaukee and points along and south of I-94, with a solid quarter inch to half inch in most other spots.

Do something good for the Earth today and you'll be rewarded tomorrow!
