The dew points have risen well into the 70's around Northeast and Eastcentral Wisconsin this first week of July. Heavy rains have been a result of the moist air around the region. Oshkosh hasn't felt the brunt of the rains thus far though. However, last week Oshkosh did see a 2"+ 24 hour rainfall. Here at OSNW3 we recorded 2.07" during 24 hour period ending at 7am on Jun 27. Some where along the path of the heavy rain came some lightning which surged through the property faulting out the webcam and ethernet port on the server. The server has been repaired but the webcam is still down for maintenance. The short term forecast keeps the area wet and sticky.
