: Wisconsin River  Portage WI - PORW3
: HSA:MKX   Flood Stage:17.0 FT   Fcst Issuance Stage:13.5 FT
: ------------------------------------------------------------
: In the absence of a freeze-up ice jam I do not expect PORW3
: to rise above FIS. However..conditions are favorable for
: frazil ice production so a freeze-up ice jam could form
: during the next few days. The high flows and cold temperatures
: can cause a significant amount of frazil ice to form in
: turbulent water like downstream of a dam. During a freeze-up
: ice jam in December 1991.. the Wisconsin River at Portage
: rose 4-5 ft higher than the open water rating curve would
: suggest. The current event is at a lower flow (12 kcfs vs
: 15 kcfs) and warmer minimum temperatures (10F vs 0F).. but
: we still could see some rises.
