Dry stretch of weather ends by the end of the week

NOW: Dry stretch of weather ends by the end of the week

This dry and sunny stretch of weather over the last 5 days has been fantastic, but we could use a little rain for our gardens. It’s been a week since our last measurable rainfall in Milwaukee, and things are starting to get a little dry.

At this point in June, Milwaukee should have already picked up 2 inches of rain for the month, but we've only had .74". Some spots north of Milwaukee did pick up a couple inches of rain last week (Fond du Lac and Sheboygan counties especially), but our southern spots haven't picked up much. Through today's date (6/17) this is the driest start to June Milwaukee has had since June 2006 when we only had .03" of rain through today. 


While we'll remain dry today and tomorrow, isolated showers and storms will be possible later in the day Friday, after 4pm. Rain and storms are likely on Saturday and could provide a soaking rain.

Our increase in rain chances will also come with increasing humidity. Dew points will be feeling rather muggy by this weekend.
