How Much Rain Did You Get July 13-14th?

Below is an image showing WSR-88 Doppler Radar rainfall estimates utilizing Dual Pol capabilities, for the time period of 130 am Friday July 13th through 2 am Sunday July 15th.  Some locations in south central and southeast Wisconsin picked up 1/4 inch to over 1 inch.  A few spots in Milwaukee County had 1.5 inches or more.  Overall, these amounts won't have much impact on the current drought since they were isolated.  Most locations had very little precipitation.
