HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GREEN BAY WI
258 PM CDT TUE JUN 17 2014

...FLASH FLOODING REMAINS POSSIBLE AT TIMES THIS WEEK...

A NEARLY STATIONARY FRONT LOCKED IN OVER SOUTHERN WISCONSIN AND
NORTHERN ILLINOIS...WILL BE THE PRIMARY FOCAL POINT FOR REPEATED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. THESE
STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO GENERATE VERY HEAVY RAINFALL AMOUNTS AND IF
THESE RAINS FALL OVER THE SAME LOCATION...THIS WOULD INCREASE THE
THREAT OF FLASH FLOODING.

RAINFALL TOTALS COULD RANGE FROM 3 TO 5 INCHES BY THE TIME THE
PRECIPITATION FINALLY DIMINISHES LATER THIS WEEKEND. BESIDES THE
POSSIBILITY OF FLASH FLOODING...THERE IS A CONCERN OF FLOODING
ALONG AREA RIVERS AND STREAMS. PEOPLE LIVING IN LOW-LYING AREAS
MAY WANT TO WATCH RAINFALL TOTALS THIS WEEK AND BE PREPARED TO
MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND IF FLOODING DOES BECOME A PROBLEM.

THE NEXT ROUND OF THUNDERSTORMS IS EXPECTED TO ARRIVE LATE THIS
EVENING OR OVERNIGHT. THE LATEST GUIDANCE SHOWS THIS THUNDERSTORM
COMPLEX TRACKING EAST FROM SOUTHERN MINNESOTA TO CENTRAL AND
SOUTHERN WISCONSIN...WHICH INCLUDES THE SAME AREA FROM WISCONSIN
RAPIDS TO MANITOWOC WHERE 1 TO 2 INCHES OF RAIN FELL LAST NIGHT.
IF THIS TRACK VERIFIES...ANOTHER INCH OR TWO WILL BE POSSIBLE
TONIGHT...WHICH WILL AGGRAVATE RIVERS AND STREAMS. STAY TUNED TO THE
LATEST FORECASTS FOR MORE INFORMATION.
