Scattered thunderstorms became more widespread over southeast Wisconsin late Saturday evening.  The slow moving thunderstorms produced heavy rainfall over parts of southeast Wisconsin.  The heaviest rainfall of 1.5 to around 3 inches occurred from southern Jefferson county and northeast Rock county east to northern Walworth, southern Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha counties. 

The heaviest rainfall reported so far was about 3 inches (3.02) at the South Milwaukee Wastewater Treatment Plant. Other heavy rainfall reports included 1.84 inches at Kenosha and 1.78 inches at Racine.
