Rainfall on Sunday

A passing weak low pressure system and abundant atmospheric moisture resulted in widespread rainfall across southern Wisconsin on Sunday.  As illustrated by the below storm total rainfall graphic, the heaviest rainfall occurred in southwest Wisconsin early in the day.  The Lone Rock airport recorded 1.5 inches of rain, with most of the rain occurring between midnight and 10 am CDT. 

August 26 rainfall

Another smaller band of heavier rain developed over northern Waukesha county in the afternoon and spread northeast into northern Milwaukee and southern Ozaukee counties.  A mesonet observer in Brown Deer reported 1.29 inches of rainfall from this passing band of heavier rainfall.  Another observer in Glendale reported 0.93 inches of rain.
