No rest for the waterlogged as more rain possible this weekend
MADISON, Wis. — The very soggy September weather continued over southern Wisconsin on Thursday morning.
Thunderstorms from late Wednesday night through Thursday morning produced as much as 3-5 inches of rain across portions of Grant and Lafayette counties.
Parts of southwestern Wisconsin and areas near the Illinois state line have received as much as 5-10 inches of rain, much of it falling over the last 10 days. Some parts of central and southern Grant County may have had over a foot of rain in the past seven days.
More rain could be on the way over the next few days. While there will be a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms from Thursday night through Friday and Friday night, a better chance of rain arrives later Saturday through Saturday night.
Over the next three days, general rainfall amounts of one-half inch to 1 inch are expected. However, heavier thunderstorms could produce 1-2 inches or more of rain.
If this occurs in the areas most affected by the recent rain, flooding will develop quickly.
Isolated severe thunderstorms may be possible from Saturday afternoon through Saturday evening, mainly west of Madison.
Hail and high winds would be the main threats.
Dry weather will return to southern Wisconsin as autumn officially begins Monday.
