Weekly rain chances after a weekend of severe storms

The weekend saw plenty of severe weather across southeast Wisconsin. Everyone was under a severe thunderstorm watch Saturday afternoon and evening and every hometown in our area was under some sort of warning at least once. The storms resulted in plenty of reports across the area including a few funnel cloud reports in Dodge County but no tornado damage. Flash flooding was reported in a few Milwaukee County communities late Saturday including Brown Deer. There were dozens of thunderstorm wind damage reports and heavy rain reports as well.

The peak severe thunderstorm wind gusts got as high as 66 mph Saturday night and many locations saw wind gusts of 60 mph satisfying that severe criteria. 

In addition to all the wind we had plenty of heavy rain. Walworth, Racine and Kenosha Counties saw heavy rain Saturday morning with over 3" reported in Pleasant Prairie. Then we had more heavy rain across Dodge, Washington, Ozaukee Counties Saturday evening with some locations seeing over four and five inches of rain. All of southeast Wisconsin got at least one inch of rain over the weekend.

Looking into the week ahead we start out dry for most of Monday and Tuesday. Just a slight chance for a shower or storm late Tuesday evening/night. Wednesday has a little better chance to see some scattered showers and storms but no severe weather is expected.
