Tracking our next chance for rain and storms
Today was the first 70 degree day since October 21st! It's been way too long, and tomorrow will be even warmer. Highs on a southwest wind should push 80 degrees. Milwaukee averages 4 days with 80+ temps in May. Last year we only had a total of 3 days.
Most of the area should be dry, windy, and very warm for Tuesday.
Take a look at the graphic above. Late Tuesday night scattered showers and storms will arrive across the area. Those storms could produce some gusty winds and small hail along with heavier rain.
We could really use the rainfall. Thankfully we have several chances for rain from Tuesday night through Friday morning. Most of the area will pick up between 1" to 1.5" of rain. Another round of heavy rain and storms will arrive Thursday night into Friday morning before drying out over the weekend.
