MILWAUKEE (AP) - The National Weather Service says Milwaukee and Madison’s wet weather have set records for Thanksgiving Day rain.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1Xw6QZ6 ) that Milwaukee had more than an inch and a half of rain Thursday. That tops the previous holiday record, reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1kX90Fc ), of 0.98 inches, set in 1968. It also beats the old mark of 0.99 inches for the date of Nov. 26, set in 1965.

In Madison, meanwhile, the State Journal reports that the 1.19 inches of rain Thursday passes the previous Thanksgiving high of 1.06 inches, set in 1879. It also breaks the Nov. 26 record of 1.05 inches, set in 1988.
