For almost an hour straight, the southern portion of Sheboygan County saw torrential downpours.  Fortunately, most of the rain fell over Lake Michigan, but many areas weren't so lucky.

Pink and red colors on radar indicate the heaviest of rain rates, which in this case was well over an inch of rain per hour.

Later Sunday evening, more severe storms pushed through southeast Wisconsin, prompting severe thunderstorm warnings and power outages, before mostly moving out by around 8 p.m.
