Moderate drought conditions continue across southeast Wisconsin

Most of southeast Wisconsin remains in a moderate drought after another week without meaningful precipitation. Dating back to the beginning of meteorological spring (March 1st), areas along and south of I-94 are running at a precipitation deficit of 3.50"-4.50", while areas to the north range between 1-3" below normal.

Milwaukee has had exactly 3.00" of precipitation since the beginning of spring, making this the 4th driest spring to date.

Unfortunately, there isn't any widespread soaking rain on the horizon, however we will have at least a chance for a few showers this weekend.

Mainly dry weather is expected today and tomorrow, but scattered showers may move by Saturday morning.

Sunday's rain chances continue to trend to the south, so only an isolated chance is expected. Either way, I wouldn't cancel your outdoor plans either day this weekend. Unfortunately what rain does fall in our area looks to be fairly light. Download the CBS 58 Ready Weather to track the minor shower chances and see if temperatures will stay in the 60s.
