South central and Southeast Wisconsin have had a fair amount of rain this month. Some scattered locations have picked up over 4 inches - which is the normal amount for the entire month of June! Below is an image of southern Wisconsin showing rainfall amounts in June 2010 through 8 am June 7th.
We've had several rounds olf showers and storms with different weather systems, but many of the storms have favored the counties of Dane, Jefferson, and Waukesha. The area from Jeffeson and Ft. Atkinson to Sullivan in Jeffeson County has picked up over 4 inches. The NWS Office southeast of Sullivan has measured 4.4 inches through 8 am June 7th, and there are many days left in June! Luckily there hasn't been any widespread serious flooding. However, isolated urban and small stream flooding has occurred during some of the heavier downpours of rain.
The normal June rainfall for Madison is 4.05 inches and for Milwaukee is 3.56 inches.
