FLOOD WATCH
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LA CROSSE WI
837 PM CDT SUN APR 13 2014

...RAIN CONTINUES THIS EVENING...

.1 TO 2 INCHES OF RAIN HAS FALLEN SO FAR TODAY IN EXTREME
NORTHEAST IOWA AND SOUTHWEST WISCONSIN. SOME OF THESE AREAS WERE
HIT HARD WITH HEAVY RAIN LAST NIGHT SO THIS HAS CAUSED SOME
FLOODING PROBLEMS TO DEVELOP THIS EVENING.

IN RICHLAND COUNTY WISCONSIN...THE PINE RIVER IS GOING OUT OF ITS
BANKS AND THERE HAS BEEN ONE MUDSLIDE REPORTED. THERE COULD ALSO
BE SECONDARY OR LESS TRAVELED ROADS THAT HAVE WATER OVER THEM.

THIS STEADY RAIN WILL BE MOVING OUT AND COLDER AIR WILL CHANGE THE
RAIN OVER THE SNOW THIS EVENING SO CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO
IMPROVE SOMEWHAT OVERNIGHT. UNTIL THEN EXERCISE CAUTION AND BE
ALERT FOR HIGH WATER IF YOU HAVE TRAVEL PLANS TONIGHT.
