HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
1024 AM CST SUN DEC 13 2015

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

Low pressure developing across the central Plains this morning will
lift north into central Wisconsin by Monday morning and 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.
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...
...Pecatonica River at Martintown...
