Historic rainfall and flooding pounded Madison, Wisconsin on Monday night and Tuesday morning, leading to one fatality. One man was killed in flood waters, according to WeatherNation affiliate WMTV in Madison. https://twitter.com/TheTimReport/status/1031914593784942593 Two other passengers were in the vehicle of the deceased man, who was driving. The other two passengers were able to be rescued. This was part of Madison's 7th-wettest day on record on Monday, when nearly four inches of rain fell at Madison's Dane County Airport. Other reports near Madison, particularly on the city's west side, received well over a foot of rainfall. Deadly Overnight Flooding in Madison, Wisconsin A strong area of low pressure moving through the nation's heartland helped to set up a band of torrential rainfall, one that  stalled over Madison and southern Wisconsin on Monday night. That led to the majority of the heavy rainfall in the above totals falling in just a few hours. The good news is a stretch of badly-needed dry weather returns to the area later this week. Cool, almost fall-like temperatures will be in the picture, along with sunny skies. That'll last through Thursday, before more showers and storms work back into the picture by Friday and Saturday - though these aren't expected to be nearly as bad as what we saw on Monday and Tuesday.
