This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of northeast
Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin.

.DAY ONE...Tonight

The first round of showers and thunderstorms will generally come
to an end across the Northland, before another large area of
showers and thunderstorms moves in later in the night. The main
threat for the remainder of the night will be heavy rainfall and
frequent lightning, although isolated large hail and gusty winds
will continue to be possible as well.

There is a possibility that storms will repeatedly move over the
same areas overnight, leading to a risk of flash flooding. The
additional rainfall today and tonight will contribute to continued
minor flooding concerns for portions of northwest Wisconsin.
Please see the latest Flash Flood Watch message for additional
information.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Thunderstorms are likely across northwest Wisconsin Wednesday
morning through early afternoon, and possibly into parts of nearby
Minnesota. The rain from the storms could result in minor
flooding for some parts of northwest Wisconsin. Additional
thunderstorms, and moderate to heavy rainfall, is forecast across
northwest Wisconsin late Wednesday through early Thursday. The
multiple rounds of rainfall could result in flooding over parts of
the northwest Wisconsin, especially over areas that had up to
several inches of rain Monday and Monday night. A Flash Flood
Watch has been issued for parts of northwest Wisconsin through
early Thursday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Skywarn Spotter activation is not anticipated Tonight.
