MILWAUKEE — Within a 48-hour time period, Milwaukee could see between two and four inches of rain.

The rain started overnight Saturday into Sunday and hasn't stopped since. In fact, it is expected to continue all day Sunday into Monday and possibly even into Tuesday.

Now, the National Weather Service (NWS) in Milwaukee is saying we've already gotten over an inch of rain.

There are flood watches in effect for areas across the state as the rain continues to pour down. This watch is in effect until 1 a.m. Monday.

All of this rain is coming from an area of low pressure that is pulling moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, according to the NWS.

If you plan to go out at all Sunday, bring an umbrella. Or better yet, stay at home and stay dry!
