We're not done yet: Another round of rain arrives tonight

We’re not done yet: Another round of rain arrives tonight

Very heavy rain fell Tuesday in a couple rounds leading to flash flooding in multiple locations. The heaviest of the rain ended around midnight going into Wednesday morning, but light steady rain will linger through the morning commute. Rain totals are very impressive especially in northern spots where in general 3-6" of rain fell. Beaver Dam got hit the hardest with rain totals near 10". Southern communities still got good rain with 1-3" there. 

As the rain is ending, river levels are increasing. Multiple rivers in southeast Wisconsin are under flood warnings the next couple days. Water is expected to keep rising through the weekend before it starts to come down. 

Unfortunately, we aren't done with the rain just yet. Another separate storm system arrives after sunset Wednesday and lasts through the morning commute on Thursday. 

Rain will not be nearly as heavy as it was on Tuesday but another quarter to half inch of rain is possible. Any additional rainfall will make flooding conditions worse. 

Expect a nice dry and sunny but cooler Friday before another round of likely rain on Saturday. Download the CBS 58 Ready Weather app to track any more rain as it develops.
