The backend of this low finally moves through Friday evening, Oct. 29 and as it does areas farthest SE could still be seeing light to moderate showers into the overnight. Gusty winds will impact every but a majority of the totals will have already occured.

When it's all said and done by Saturday morning much of southeast Wisconsin will have seen over half an inch of rain with many areas having the potential of an inch plus. 

We dry out just in time for the weekend and look to stay that way through Halloween and the start of next week. Cooler air welcomes us into the new month of November!
