Soaking start to the weekend

NOW: Soaking start to the weekend

It's been a gloomy and soggy week and it continues for the first half of the weekend. We've had at least a trace of rain for the past six days, going all the way back to last Saturday. With some evening showers on the way Friday and steady rain for part of Saturday we will hit eight straight days which would tie the longest streak of the year so far. We could even hit nine days if we see lingering showers Sunday morning. Most of this week's rain fell on Tuesday with light showers and drizzle throughout Wednesday and Thursday. It was a soaking rain for all of southeast Wisconsin with most spots picking up between 1-2" of new rain. 

Most of Friday is dry although we could have some sprinkles or isolated showers, especially near the IL border. Our next storm system quickly moves in with rain starting around dinnertime Friday evening with everyone seeing rain by midnight. 

You will wake up to a soggy start for most of Saturday morning with rain becoming more scattered Saturday afternoon and evening. How long the rain lasts is a little in question with some weather models wrapping up the rain around sunset Saturday evening and others keeping lingering showers in play through Saturday night into early Sunday morning.

It's going to be another soaking rain with most spots seeing between a quarter to three quarters inch of new rain from Friday night and throughout Saturday. Once the rain wraps up Saturday evening or Sunday morning we kick off a nice dry stretch.
