Timing out rain chances for Father's Day Weekend
We are currently in the middle of a long dry stretch of weather. As of the end of Wednesday we had five straight completely dry days without a drop of rain. Thursday will likely be the 6th day and some may even get a seventh day on Friday. It's pretty rare for us to get this many dry days in a row during our warmer spring and summer months. Our streak of five straight days is the most since the last couple days of February and beginning of March. We had a nine day dry stretch in the middle of January.
Thanks to our recent dry streak we are well below-average on rain for the month of June. We've only picked up about three quarters of an inch of rain which is below the to date average of 2.20".
As of Thursday morning, rain has moved into Thursday but it takes its sweet time getting here. That rain dissipates as it moves east into Wisconsin. There is a chance for rain locally on Friday but it looks best in western counties during the afternoon and evening and even then doesn't look super great. Most of us probably stay dry.
A better chance for rain arrives on Saturday with scattered rain and showers and storms most of the day. There will be some dry time but it's hard to pinpoint so if you want to do something outside for Father's Day weekend Saturday probably won't be the best day to do it.
Some rain will likely linger into Sunday morning but the heart of Father's Day looks pretty dry. Rain returns Sunday night and Monday also looks a little soggy.
By the time the rain wraps up Monday night many spots could erase most of their June rain deficit with some locations across the state seeing up to 2".
