UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) Up to four-inches of rain fell during a series of thunderstorms that lasted for ten hours yesterday in southeast Wisconsin. The National Weather Service reported flash floods in Brookfield and Wauwatosa -- and in Waukesha, where the Fox River went over its banks and into some backyards.

Watertown had 60-mile-an-hour winds with numerous trees and power lines down.

Four-inches of rain fell near Fort Atkinson, and Pewaukee had one-and-a-third-inches in just one hour.

Racine had baseball-sized hail, and Beloit had tennis-ball-sized hail. A house in North Prairie was struck by lightning.

Bohners Lake near Burlington had wind damage to several out-buildings. Sewers overflowed in Jefferson. The Milwaukee Metro Sewerage District took an emergency action to prevent sewage overflows, by pumping combined rain and sewage directly to a final treatment facility.

To the north, Appleton and Green Bay both recorded new record rainfalls for the date. Appleton had two-point-one inches by noon, breaking a 72-year-old rainfall record. Green Bay had just over an inch, breaking a 90-year-old mark. More rain is predicted for southeast Wisconsin today, but the rest of the state is expected to be dry with cooler highs in the 50's to around 60.
