HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GREEN BAY WI
1154 AM CDT TUE MAR 29 2016

...HEAVY RAIN WILL LIKELY CAUSE RISES IN RIVER LEVELS THIS WEEK...

A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL AFFECT THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES
REGION LATE TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY. THIS SYSTEM IS CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING 1 TO 2 INCHES OF TOTAL RAINFALL...WITH THE HIGHEST
AMOUNTS CURRENTLY ANTICIPATED FROM WISCONSIN RAPIDS TO SHAWANO
TO CRIVITZ. THE PERIOD OF HEAVIEST RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO OCCUR
WEDNESDAY NIGHT...AS A SIGNIFICANT BAND OF RAINFALL AND EMBEDDED
THUNDERSTORMS BECOMES FOCUSED NEAR A FRONTAL BOUNDARY.

MOST RIVERS HAVE RECEDED FROM THE HEAVY RAIN EVENT IN THE MIDDLE
OF MARCH...BUT THE GROUND REMAINS SATURATED DUE TO RUNOFF FROM
MELTING SNOW. ADDITIONAL RUNOFF FROM THE LATEST FORECASTED
RAINFALL WILL CAUSE RIVERS TO RISE...BUT MOST ARE EXPECTED TO
REMAIN BELOW FLOOD STAGE AT THIS TIME. A POSSIBLE EXCEPTION IS
THE WOLF RIVER...WHICH IS ALREADY RUNNING ABOVE BANKFULL AT
SHIOCTON AND NEW LONDON.

ANYONE LIVING NEAR A RIVER OR STREAM SHOULD CLOSELY MONITOR LATER
FORECASTS AND STATEMENTS ON THE POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING...
ESPECIALLY IF FORECASTED RAINFALL AMOUNTS INCREASE THIS WEEK.
