Short break from the rain expected

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) Some welcomed relief from the wet weather is expected as we move through the end of the week as rain chances remain low. Thursday looks like the best day to enjoy some time outside or catch up on yard work.

Outside of a sprinkle, dry conditions will prevail with a mix of sun and clouds Thursday. While Friday starts dry, rain chances will sneak back in by the end of the day. This will lead to a vary active pattern by the weekend with on and off storm activity.

Believe it or not, rainfall is actually running below average for most of southern Wisconsin. Madison is running more than a half inch below normal as of Wednesday. While that's not a bad thing, the problem is that we aren't seeing a lot of consecutive days of dry weather and that makes it hard to completely dry out.

Unfortunately, the wet pattern shows no signs of ending through the end of June. While temperatures will be on the increase, more days than not will feature the chance of showers and storms. Heavy rain and severe weather chances may also creep back in for the final week of the month.
