HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
318 PM CDT WED AUG 27 2014

...HEAVY RAIN POTENTIAL LATER THURSDAY INTO SATURDAY...

ROUNDS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED AT TIMES FROM
MAINLY THURSDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY WITH 1 TO 2 INCHES
FORECAST...BUT LOCALLY 3 TO 4 INCH AMOUNTS ARE POSSIBLE. THIS IS DUE
TO A STRONG WARM FRONT MOVING NORTH THROUGH SOUTHERN WISCONSIN
THURSDAY NIGHT FOLLOWED BY THE FRONT RETURNING AS A STATIONARY FRONT
OVER PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN WISCONSIN FOR FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
SATURDAY.

THE HEAVIEST RAINFALL WILL OCCUR TOWARD CENTRAL WISCONSIN WHERE
APPROXIMATELY 2 INCHES IS FORECAST...BUT GIVEN THE LOCALIZED NATURE
OF THUNDERSTORMS...SMALL AREAS COULD RECEIVE 3 TO 4 INCHES. THE
MILWAUKEE METROPOLITAN AREA AND LOCATIONS NEAR THE ILLINOIS BORDER
CAN EXPECT AROUND ONE INCH OF RAINFALL WITH SOME LOCALLY HIGHER
AMOUNTS AS WELL.

THE ANTICIPATED RAINFALL WOULD CAUSE AREA RIVERS AND STREAMS TO RISE
THROUGH THIS WEEKEND. LOCALLY HEAVIER RAIN AMOUNTS MAY ALSO LEAD TO
FLOODING IN URBAN AREAS.

LISTEN TO NOAA WEATHER RADIO OR YOUR LOCAL MEDIA FOR THE LATEST UPDATES
ON THIS SITUATION.
