FLOOD WATCH
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
553 AM CDT THU SEP 22 2016

...MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF THUNDERSTORMS COULD LEAD TO FLOODING...

.THERE IS A LINGERING RISK OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WITH HEAVY
RAIN NORTH AND WEST OF MADISON TODAY. SHOWERS WITH CHANCES OF
THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD CONTINUE TONIGHT...BUT RAINFALL AMOUNTS LOOK
MUCH MORE LIMITED DUE TO THE LACK OF STRONGER THUNDERSTORMS
TONIGHT. THEREFORE THE RISK OF FLASH FLOODING SHOULD END BY EARLY
EVENING.

SIMILAR TO THE PAST FEW DAYS...THE BIGGEST CONCERN IS FOR THE
REPEATED DEVELOPMENT OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MOVING OVER THE
SAME AREA...FOCUSING COPIOUS RAINFALL AMOUNTS IN A SMALL AREA.
THOSE AREAS COULD SEE ANOTHER 1 INCH OF RAIN

SOIL CONDITIONS ARE ALREADY SATURATED FROM RECENT RAINFALL...
INCREASING THE FLOODING POTENTIAL.

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING...

THE FLASH FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR

* A PORTION OF SOUTH CENTRAL WISCONSIN...INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING
  AREAS...COLUMBIA...GREEN LAKE...IOWA...MARQUETTE AND SAUK.

* THROUGH EARLY THIS EVENING

* MORE ROUNDS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH
  TONIGHT. BUT THE BIGGEST THREAT FOR FLOOD PRODUCING RAINFALL
  IS THROUGH THIS MORNING.

* TWO TO FOUR INCHES OF RAIN FELL ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE WATCH
  AREA YESTERDAY AND OVERNIGHT WITH THE HIGHEST OVER NORTHERN
  PORTIONS OF SAUK COUNTY. AN ADDITIONAL INCH IS POSSIBLE TODAY
  IN PARTS OF THE WATCH AREA. THUNDERSTORMS COULD REPEATEDLY
  AFFECT THE SAME AREA RESULTING IN TORRENTIAL RAINFALL.
  FLOODING COULD DEVELOP RAPIDLY...ESPECIALLY AREAS ALREADY
  PRONE TO RAPIDLY RISING WATERS. PARTS OF THE MADISON METRO
  AREA ARE VERY SENSITIVE TO RAPID RAINFALL...RESULTING IN URBAN
  FLOODING.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH MEANS THAT CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP THAT LEAD
TO FLASH FLOODING. FLASH FLOODING IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.

YOU SHOULD MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION
SHOULD FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS BE ISSUED.
