We trade relentless rains for something quieter, cooler
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58)--The rain faucets wouldn't let up on Sunday. Crazy amounts between 4 and 6 inches across southern Milwaukee and northern Racine counties. In fact, Mitchell International received record rainfall at 4.79 inches for August 2nd. Luckily, the atmosphere has quieted itself down considerably. However, we can't rule out a few scattered showers today and possibly a few isolated ones on Tuesday. Otherwise, look for cool conditions with highs only in the 60s. Lows in the 40s away from the lake the next few nights.
Northeast winds will increase lakeside today. We could also see wave heights between 6 and 8 feet. Rip currents are also possible. Definitely a good day for swimmers and boaters alike to stay away from Lake Michigan.
80s come back to us by the end of the week along with humidity and increased storm chances for the weekend.
