Flood Watch

...Long Duration Rainfall Could Result In Flooding...

.There is increasing concern that the period Monday through
Tuesday night could result in parts of south central and southeast
Wisconsin seeing flooding as a result of repeated rounds of
rain.

A frontal boundary will push into the area and stall, acting as a
focus for multiple rounds of moderate to possibly heavy rainfall.

We have an existing icy snowpack with high moisture content and
the ground is still deeply frozen. One to 2 inches of rain falling
on these surface conditions is an ideal setup for efficient and
rapid runoff. This could cause smaller rivers and streams to reach
flood stage.

Thunderstorms are also possible in the southeast. If heavy rain
accompanies these storms, flash flooding becomes a concern.

There is still some uncertainty as to just where the heavier rain
bands will set up and how the icy rivers and ground will respond.

For now, prepare for the potential of this heavy rain and possible
flooding across southern Wisconsin during the Monday through
Tuesday night timeframe. If flooding does occur, it would persist
through much of the week ahead.
