HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GREEN BAY WI
437 AM CDT MON MAR 31 2014

...COMBINATION OF SNOW MELT AND INCOMING LIGHT RAIN LIKELY TO
CAUSE AREA RIVER AND STREAMS TO RISE THROUGH MID-WEEK...

WARM TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED ACROSS WISCONSIN AGAIN TODAY AHEAD
OF A STRONG SYSTEM OVER THE CENTRAL PLAINS. THIS SYSTEM IS
FORECAST TO MOVE NORTHEAST TOWARD WESTERN LAKE SUPERIOR AND INTO
SOUTHERN ONTARIO TONIGHT INTO TUESDAY. THE COMBINATION OF THESE
WARM TEMPERATURES AND LIGHT RAINFALL WILL RESULT IN CONTINUED
MELTING OF THE CURRENT SNOW PACK OVER CENTRAL AND NORTHERN
WISCONSIN. SINCE THE GROUND UNDERNEATH THE SNOW IS STILL
FROZEN...THE RUNOFF WILL FLOW INTO AREA RIVERS AND STREAMS. THIS
WILL INCREASE THE THREAT FOR FLOODING FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THE
WEEK.

ANYONE LIVING NEAR A RIVER OR STREAM...OR IN A LOW-LYING AREA
SUSCEPTIBLE TO FLOODING...SHOULD KEEP ABREAST OF THE LATEST
WEATHER FORECASTS AND STATEMENTS. IF YOU SEE WATER BEGIN TO
RISE...DO NOT HESITATE TO MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND.
