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

...Potential increasing for rising river levels early next week...

An area of low pressure will make its way into the region Sunday...
bringing plenty of rainfall to southern Wisconsin Sunday into Monday.
The potential exists for rivers to reach their bankfull levels...with
some rivers reaching the minor flood stage.

At this point...many of the rivers are forecast to reach just above
minor flood stage. Also...most of these rivers are not forecast to
reach minor flood stage for a few days. So...we will continue the
Hydrologic Outlook for these locations. We will continue to monitor the
situation and adjust product issuance when necessary.

Below is preliminary river forecast information. River forecasts
are normally updated twice a day - in the morning and evening.
The 7 day forecasts take into account past precipitation...soil
moisture...etc. and predicted future 48 hour precipitation.

...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...
