...Several Periods of Heavy Rainfall Expected...

Showers and thunderstorms will diminish this morning across southern
Wisconsin.  Since Wednesday evening, periods of thunderstorms have
deposited between 1 and 4 inches of rainfall over parts of south
central Wisconsin, from northwest of Madison near Reedsburg to
southwest of Madison toward Darlington and Monroe.

The overnight rainfall caused some minor urban and rural flooding as
well as rises in area rivers and streams. However the thunderstorm
threat will become small later today and continue into Friday
morning. This will allow the rain water to recede.

Another period of heavy rainfall is then expected across southern
Wisconsin Friday night.  Heavy Rainfall of 1 to 4 inches will again
be possible. This heavy rainfall may affect the same areas which
received heavy rain last night and this morning.

If you have outdoor plans the next several days, especially near
streams and rivers, be aware of the potential for flooding.  Listen
for later statements and possible Flash Flood Watches and Warnings.
