Flooding rains Tuesday with more rain chances on the way

NOW: Flooding rains Tuesday with more rain chances on the way

Tuesday saw flooding in southeast Wisconsin with flash flood warnings issued for parts of Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties, especially south of I-94. The Greenfield and Greendale areas were hit hardest especially along 27th Street. Greenfield topped our rain reports list with 3" of rain with most of that falling in less than an hour. Many other Waukesha and Milwaukee hometowns got between 1-3" of rainfall.

Tuesday's rain combined with storms on July 4th have led to almost 3" of rain officially in Milwaukee. The total for all of June in Milwaukee was just over 3". We really needed some good rain and although it came a little too fast Tuesday it was a nice soaking.

The rain chances aren't done. A few lingering showers are possible Wednesday morning before drying out in the afternoon. The storm chances for Thursday are uncertain but look better in the afternoon and evening than the morning. A lingering shower is possible Friday morning but otherwise the rest of the weekend looks dry.
