UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) Last month was one of the soggiest on record in Wisconsin. The National Weather Service said Madison had about 9.5-inches of rain in June, the fifth-highest on record. Also, there was at least a trace of rain during 20-of-the-30 days of June in Madison -- the second-highest in Weather Service annals.
Milwaukee had its 14th-wettest June, with just over 6-inches of rain. That city also had 20 rainy days last month, tied with 1969.
The faucet was turned off at least long enough for most of us to enjoy our July Fourth weekends. The northwest half of Wisconsin had rain early yesterday, and it spread during the afternoon. Those storms are gone, but more are due in this afternoon and evening.
