HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
857 PM CST SAT DEC 12 2015

...Rising river levels expected early next week...

Low pressure developing across the southern Plains this evening will
lift north into central Wisconsin by Monday afternoon. Ahead of the low
will be a surge of deep subtropical moisture. This anomalously high
moisture will lead to favorable conditions for moderate to heavy rain
across southern Wisconsin over the next few days. Storm total rainfall
amounts of 1.5 to 2.5 inches are expected...and this will result in rises
on area rivers and streams. The potential exists for rivers to reach their
bankfull levels...with some possibly reaching flood stage. Please monitor
the latest river forecasts and statements closely.

Below is preliminary river forecast information. River forecasts are
normally updated twice a day-in the morning and evening. Seven day
river forecasts take into account past precipitation...soil
moisture, etc...and predicted future precipitation for the next 48
hours.

...Wisconsin River at Portage...
...Baraboo River at Baraboo...
...East Branch Pecatonica River at Blanchardville...
...Fox River at New Munster...
...Pecatonica River at Martintown...
...Sugar River at Brodhead...
