Very dry conditions continue, will there be relief soon?

The rain meter has been pointing down to the south away from Wisconsin the last week or two. This is leading to drought conditions for some locations in the Badger State.

The last 10 days has been very dry for a number of spots in Wisconsin:

*Milwaukee 0.25”

*Green Bay 0.44”

*Madison 0.22”

*La Crosse 0.09”

*Wausau 1.27” (one day)

*Rhinelander 0.64”

The bottom line is we need rainfall all around the state, more in some locations rather than others. The big reason we are lacking rain is the unusual jet pattern staying well to our south. It’s almost a look at fall with the sagging jet stream. A front will power into the state tomorrow and Thursday, sparking showers and a few storms, and this could give the area relief. Some of these storms that drive in could turn strong, especially over central and northern Wisconsin.

Once this front moves out, the attention is to the weekend. It could turn hot again! Highs will make a run at 90 degrees both Saturday and Sunday, and the heat could continue through next week.
