The wee hours of Sunday brought us the summer season and with it 90 degree temperatures expected in parts of Wisconsin this week. Meteorologist Chris McGinness, of WDJT-TV in Milwaukee, says the first half of June has been cooler than average temperatures in the 70's. But "the pendulum is swinging to the other side" with above average temperatures for the next week to ten days.
Last June Wisconsin took a pounding with rainfall which led to massive flooding and the drainage of Lake Delton. McGinness says expect potential rainfall in the next couple of days in southern Wisconsin but nothing reminiscent of last year or even last week.
On Thursday night the Milwaukee suburb of West Allis had over four-and-half-inches of rain, to the west Dodgeville had water up to a foot deep in its streets. Residents of several homes in far west Wisconsin were trapped in their homes from flooding.
