Rainy End to The Weekend

This November, we've had only two days with measurable rain adding up to just shy of three quarters of an inch. We need more wet weather before this month ends to stay on track. To date, we are short by just over one and a half inches from the normal amount. We're also lagging on snow. Two days recorded a trace this month. And on average we pick up about two and a half inches of the white stuff. And the good news is, we've got some solid wet weather on the way!

Take a look at this map:

All that wet weather lining the West Coast will quickly surge east and push our next weather maker into the area by Sunday night. Similar to today, we'll have some dim sunshine during the day, but once we pass sunset, the chance for showers increases.

Here we are about 5pm:

Not much action happening just yet. But a few rogue sprinkles or passing light showers are possible during the evening. The soaking widespread rain holds off until about midnight, and continues into Monday morning. By around sunrise it tapers of to just widely scattered showers. And it looks like we'll probably see a lull in the activity through the rest of the morning and into the early afternoon. Then, another slug of moisture will work back in for the commute home. Showers will still be around through Monday night before ending early Tuesday morning. When all is said and done, we're easily calling for a half inch of rain with many of us closer to a full inch when it's over.

The above map shows what you can expect around the commute home on Monday. As the showers continue to pivot across southern Wisconsin, look to those totals back to the west for a better gauge of total rain. If these numbers pan out, we'd really cut into our deficit on the month bringing us to near normal precip for November.
