Scattered showers continue Thursday and Friday

Most of southeast Wisconsin saw some April thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon. The storms had a good amount of thunder and lightning and some small hail was also reported in a few spots. The rainfall from the storms wasn't a ton with most seeing around a tenth or two of rain but Milwaukee saw over a quarter inch and Kenosha got almost a half inch. Even with that decent rain we are still about a half inch below on rainfall for the month of April which follows a fairly dry March. 

A low pressure system to our southwest will continue to spin waves of showers across Wisconsin through most of Thursday and Friday. The scattered nature of the rain means we will likely see some long dry hours but showers will be possible off and on for most of the next 48 hours. 

Thursday has a better chance to see some heavier pockets of rain ranging from a few tenths to about a half inch. Friday's rain looks much lighter with only a tenth or so. By the time the rain ends Friday night most of southeast Wisconsin will have picked up an additional 0.25-0.75" of rain. 

Despite the scattered nature of the rain Thursday and Friday the chance is fairly likely. The rain chance on Saturday looks less but is still possible, especially Saturday evening into Sunday.
