HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LA CROSSE WI
243 PM CDT SAT MAR 29 2014

...WARM TEMPERATURES MAKING RIVER FLOODING POSSIBLE NEXT WEEK...

RIVER FLOODING IS POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF WESTERN INTO NORTH
CENTRAL WISCONSIN NEXT WEEK...CAUSED BY THE RAPID MELTING OF THE
DEEPER SNOW THAT IS PRESENT ALONG AND NORTH OF HIGHWAY 10. AS OF
SATURDAY...THE DEEPER SNOW CONTAINED 2 TO 4 INCHES OF WATER IF
MELTED COMPLETELY.

TEMPERATURES IN THE 52 TO 60 DEGREE RANGE SUNDAY AND MONDAY WILL
LEAD TO THE RAPID MELTING OF SNOW. WITH THE GROUND STILL FROZEN...MUCH
OF THE WATER WILL RUN INTO AREA CREEKS AND RIVERS...RESULTING IN
RAPID RISES...ESPECIALLY ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY.

BY TUESDAY AND THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK...FLOODING IS LOOKING
MORE PROBABLE...ESPECIALLY FOR THE BLACK...TREMPEALEAU...AND
BUFFALO RIVERS AND THEIR SMALLER TRIBUTARIES. AT THIS TIME...THE
FLOODING DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE SIGNIFICANT.

BE SURE TO MONITOR THE LATEST HYDROLOGIC STATEMENTS AND OUTLOOKS
AS THE FLOODING POTENTIAL BECOMES MORE CLEAR IN THE COMING DAYS.
