HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GREEN BAY WI
951 PM CDT MON MAR 28 2016

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

A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL AFFECT THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES
REGION TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY. THIS SYSTEM IS CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING 1 TO 2 INCHES OF TOTAL RAINFALL...WITH THE HIGHER
AMOUNTS NORTHWEST OF A LINE FROM MARSHFIELD TO IRON MOUNTAIN. THE
PERIOD OF HIGHEST RAINFALL AMOUNTS WITH EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS
WILL BE TOWARD WEDNESDAY NIGHT. THUNDERSTORMS MAY PRODUCE LOCALLY
HIGHER AMOUNTS OF RAINFALL.

MOST RIVERS HAVE RECEDED FROM THE HEAVY RAIN EVENT IN THE MIDDLE
OF MARCH. BUT THE GROUND REMAINS SATURATED DUE TO THE RUN OFF
FROM LAST WEEKS HEAVY SNOWFALL. RUNOFF FROM THE LATEST FORECASTED
RAINFALL WILL CAUSE RIVERS TO RISE...BUT OVERALL SHOULD REMAIN
BELOW MINOR FLOOD STAGE AT THIS TIME.

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