Rain Totals, Funnel Pic, & More Rain

***Watch WISN 12 News for the latest weather information!***

Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog!  Our latest round of rain is now history, but it did washout many outdoor activities late Saturday.

Rain totals were impressive across the region.  Here is a list from viewers.

  • Troy Center  2.30″
  • Lake Mills  1.90″
  • Town of Raymon  1.80″
  • Sturtevant  1.50″
  • Walworth  1.33″
  • Greenfield  1.23″
  • Germantown  1.00″
  • Milwaukee  1.00″
  • Port Washington  0.29″

Remember if you have a rain total to share, please post it to the comments section of the weather blog.  Or feel free to drop it off at our Facebook page WeatherWatch 12

While we avoided severe weather, several reports of a funnel clouds came in from Madison and Sun Prairie.  Here is just one picture of the classic looking funnel.  Keep in mind a funnel is not a tornado, in order to be a tornado, it must touch the ground.  This picture is from J. Hodgson.

It would nice to get a break from the rain, but it just isn’t in the cards quiet yet.  While Sunday will not be a washout, the dry morning will give way to a few showers in the afternoon, maybe an isolated t-storm too.  Below is an image from our in-house computer model.  This is at 3 p.m. Sunday, just a few spotty showers in southeast Wisconsin.  So don’t cancel any outdoor plans.

The timing for any possible rain on Sunday will be between Noon and 7 p.m.  Sunday will be cooler and less humid, lakeshore locations will top out in the upper 60s, maybe some lower 70s inland.

The active pattern looks to continue for the week ahead.  In Sunday’s afternoon blog, look for an update on Tuesday’s rain chance, and also our run into the low 90s for highs late in the week!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Nice funnel…I guess it is. Hard to tell without seeing the ground. Things continue to stay active…

    Guess we have seen this before…

    • Glad I said June would be the wettest month this summer. More rain chances ahead for Milwaukee. Despite the rain, temps have still been above average. Jeremy
