And even though La Crosse had more than an inch of rain on both Wednesday and Thursday, the National Weather Service says it's unlikely to rain enough today to break the monthly record. La Crosse has received measurable rain for 12 days in a row, not counting today, and we have had only seven days this month without any rain at all.

MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) Two women have been arrested for obstruction after a hostage hoax unnecessarily mobilized SWAT officers in Dunn County.
Authorities say a woman texted her mother Wednesday, saying she was being held against her will by a man with a gun and a knife. Her mother called police, who started texting with the alleged victim. Dozens of officers, including the Eau Claire County Tactical Team, were called in for a potential hostage situation. A command post was established at a bank in Boyceville because authorities believed the woman was being held at a home in the area.
A sheriff's deputy spotted a woman matching the alleged victim's description in Wheeler and determined she had made up the hostage story.
Dunn County Sheriff Dennis Smith says a 27-year-old Minnesota woman is behind the hoax.
