Episode Narrative A series of showers and thunderstorms, some with moderate to heavy rainfall rates, left behind rainfall totals of 1.5 almost 3 inches in a band from the Madison (Dane Co.) to Milwaukee (Milwaukee Co.). This resulted in minor small stream/urban flooding in the Madison to Milwaukee corridor. Numerous roads were flooded at one time or another, but none were closed. Raw sewage was dumped into Lake Michigan after storm sewers/deep tunnel system filled up in the Milwaukee area. Specific rainfall totals include 1.84 inches at the UW-Charmany Farm on the southwest side of Madison, 1.80 inches at UW-Whitewater (Jefferson-Walworth county line), 2.48 inches in Elm Grove (Waukesha Co.), and 2.84 inches about 6 miles northwest of downtown Milwaukee. Most of the rain fell between 2100CST on April 2nd and 0600CST on April 3rd, although some minor road and stream flooding continued until about 1000CST on April 3rd. Additionally, lightning strikes were responsible for scattered power outages across south-central and southeast Wisconsin.
