359 AM CDT THU APR 24 2014

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTH CENTRAL AND NORTHEAST
WISCONSIN.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

PERIODS OF RAIN AND WET SNOW WILL CONTINUE IN FAR NORTHERN
WISCONSIN TODAY...AND INTO THIS EVENING. LOCATIONS NEAR THE UPPER
MICHIGAN BORDER COULD RECEIVE A FEW INCHES OF ACCUMULATION...BUT
THE ACCUMULATION SHOULD BE MAINLY ON GRASSY AREAS.

THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER CENTRAL AND EAST-
CENTRAL WISCONSIN TODAY...BUT SEVERE WEATHER IS NOT EXPECTED.
RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF A HALF INCH TO ONE INCH WILL CAUSE MANY RIVERS
AND STREAMS TO SLOWLY RISE...THOUGH MOST SHOULD REMAIN BELOW FLOOD
STAGE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

THERE WILL BE SEVERAL CHANCES FOR LIGHT SNOW...MAINLY ACROSS
NORTHERN WISCONSIN EARLY NEXT WEEK AS A SLOW MOVING UPPER LOW
PASSES BY TO THE SOUTH. THERE IS TOO MUCH UNCERTAINTY AT THIS TIME
TO DETERMINE ACCUMULATION POTENTIAL.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO FORWARD SNOWFALL MEASUREMENTS TO THE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN GREEN BAY.

SOME RIVERS GOING BACK UP TOWARD BANKFULL OR FLOOD STAGE BY THIS

HALF OF RAIN FALLING ACROSS THE REGION. MORE RAIN FROM THE LATE
WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK COULD ALSO CAUSE SOME ADDITIONAL
RISES...BUT THERE IS MORE UNCERTAINTY DURING THIS TIME WITH WHERE
THE HEAVIER RAIN COULD END UP FALLING.
