Milwaukee, WI – Showers and storms are expected to persist throughout the day, with a brief respite in the afternoon.

According to the National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan, Tuesday will see significant rainfall, particularly along and west of I-39, with amounts ranging from 0.75 to 1.75 inches and potential to exceed 2 inches southwest of Madison. Morning rain will bring pockets of heavy rainfall, especially west of I-39, with totals generally between 0.5 to 1 inch. Evening showers are anticipated to add up to an inch, with the heaviest rain southwest of I-90.

Wednesday will offer a drier and hotter day, providing some relief from the storms. However, Independence Day will start dry but showers and storms are expected to return in the evening and continue into Friday.

Dangerous swim conditions are forecasted for Tuesday, affecting beaches in Sheboygan, Ozaukee, Milwaukee, Racine, and Kenosha counties. The National Weather Service has warned of strong south-southeast winds and high waves, posing a high swim risk with waves reaching 3 to 6 feet, especially near Port Washington and Sheboygan. Beachgoers are advised to stay away from dangerous areas like piers, break walls, and jetties due to potentially life-threatening currents.

The holiday week outlook indicates more showers and storms, with temperatures fluctuating between the mid-70s to low-80s. The forecast suggests a dry Wednesday, followed by potential showers and storms leading into Independence Day and continuing into Friday, impacting plans for outdoor celebrations. Stay informed on weather updates and heed safety advisories if planning to visit beaches or engage in outdoor activities.
