After record-wet October November starts out as one of the driest on record
Wisconsin just had one of its wettest Octobers on record, but November is proving to be one the driest so far.
The National Weather Service said Milwaukee had just 0.01 inch of rain during the first half of this month. That's tied for the third-driest start to a November since 1850.
And Madison is having its fourth-driest November so far. T
he southern half of the state could get some light rain this afternoon through Thursday - but forecasters say it won't be nearly as much as the downpours this week in Illinois and Missouri.
Dry conditions are expected to return statewide on Friday and continue at least through the weekend.
