MADISON (WKOW) -- Parts of Dane County saw significant rain early Wednesday morning, but meteorologists say it won't do anything to help the drought.

The rain started around 4:15 a.m. over Lake Mendota and continued across central Dane County and into western Jefferson County. It band was south of Waunakee and north of Verona, hitting mostly Madison and a highly populated area.

27 Storm Track meteorologists say while one inch of rain fall outside the WKOW studios, only a trace fell at the Dane County airport. Most of southern Wisconsin didn't see anything.

Meteorologists say while any rain is welcome right now, the severe drought in southern Wisconsin is not over. New drought information will come out Thursday, and meteorologists say they don't expect this rain to change the situation at all.
