...RAIN TO CONTINUE OVERNIGHT...

A POWERFUL STORM SYSTEM COMBINED WITH AN INFLUX OF EXTREMELY MOIST AIR
WAS PRODUCING WIDESPREAD RAIN ACROSS WISCONSIN EARLY THIS EVENING. AT
900 PM...A LARGE AREA OF RAIN COVERED ABOUT THE NORTHERN THREE-QUARTERS
OF THE STATE. THE RAIN WAS MOVING NORTH AT ABOUT 40 MPH.

A LULL IN THE PRECIPITATION HAD WORKED INTO FAR SOUTHERN WISCONSIN. THAT
WILL SHIFT NORTH TOWARD EAST-CENTRAL WISCONSIN...AND MAY RESULT IN A
DECREASE IN THE RAINFALL OVER EAST-CENTRAL WISCONSIN FOR A TIME DURING
THE LATE EVENING. HOWEVER...GIVEN THE STRENGTH OF THE STORM SYSTEM
MOVING THROUGH THE AREA...AND THE UNSEASONABLY MOIST AIR FLOWING INTO
WISCONSIN ABOVE THE SURFACE...THE RAIN IS EXPECTED TO REINTENSIFY AGAIN
LATER IN THE NIGHT. A FEW RUMBLES OF THUNDER ARE EVEN POSSIBLE IN GREEN
BAY AND THE FOX VALLEY AND LAKESHORE AREAS.

RAINFALL TOTALS BY MID-MORNING TUESDAY SHOULD RANGE FROM UP TO AN INCH
OVER FAR NORTH-CENTRAL WISCONSIN...TO 1.5 TO 3 INCHES ACROSS MUCH OF
CENTRAL...EAST-CENTRAL...AND NORTHEAST WISCONSIN.

THE PERSISTENT RAINS WILL LEAD TO SOME PONDING OF WATER IN LOW-LYING
AREAS. SOME STORM SEWER GRATES WILL BECOME PLUGGED WITH THE LEAVES THAT
HAVE FALLEN OFF THE TREES. THAT IS LIKELY TO RESULT IN SOME PONDING OF
WATER IN PARKING LOTS AND SOME STREETS AS WELL.

USE EXTRA CAUTION IF YOU ARE TRAVELING TONIGHT.

THE STORM SYSTEM WILL BE SLOW TO EXIT THE AREA...SO PERIODS OF RAIN WILL
CONTINUE THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK. BUT AFTER TUESDAY MORNING...THE
RAINFALL IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE NEARLY AS HEAVY.

THE HEAVY RAIN MAY ALSO EVENTUALLY CAUSE SOME AREA RIVERS TO RISE TO
NEAR BANKFULL...THOUGH IT WILL TAKE A LITTLE TIME FOR THE BULK OF THE
WATER TO REACH RIVER SYSTEMS. BE SURE TO MONITOR LATER STATEMENTS FROM
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FOR INFORMATION ON THE POTENTIAL FOR RIVERS
TO EXCEED BANKFULL.
