CREATED Apr 16, 2013

This will be the last day with a nice feel of spring to it with mostly sunny skies and temperatures topping out in the low 50s under a light wind.  A stray shower is possible this afternoon and overnight tonight but mostly it will be dry.

Colder and wet weather returns on Wednesday with highs only in the 40s and rain showers becoming more widespread by the evening hours.  Thunderstorms and heavy rain showers are possible Wednesday night with up to an inch and a half expected through Wednesday.

Temperatures bump back up to 60 degrees on Thursday but rain showers and thunderstorms continue, heavy rain is possible with an additional 1.0"-1.5" possible through Thursday.  Rain continues on Friday with some periods of snow even mixing in.

Most locations in southeast Wisconsin will see 2.00"-3.75" of rain from Wednesday through Friday so a Flood Watch has been issued for all of southeastern Wisconsin.  The rivers are already swollen and the ground is saturated, so many rivers may rise past flood stage with this additional rainfall.
