...Rising river levels with flooding possible later this week...

Low pressure over the central 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 through Monday morning. 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
