...Rises on Area Rivers and Streams Possible Later This Week into
the Weekend...

With the warming weather pattern this week will come chances of
rain. Any rain that falls will land on at least partially frozen
soils and/or melting snow cover, with much of the rainfall
expected to end up as runoff. Any rainfall from Wednesday night
into the weekend will have potential to create rises and possible
flooding on area streams and rivers.

The first round of rain is set to spread across the area Wednesday
night. Up to 1/2 inch of rain is possible for parts of western
into Central Wisconsin. These rains would fall on frozen soils or
melting snow, with rises possible on the Black, Trempealeau,
Buffalo and Yellow rivers. Persons along these rivers and other
nearby streams should keep and eye on water levels Thursday.

Another more widespread round of rain is looking to fall across
the entire area Thursday night into Saturday night. One to
locally more than 2 inches of rain is possible during this time.
Thunderstorms are also possible Thursday night into Friday night,
mainly near and south of Interstate 90. These rains would also
fall on at least partly frozen soils or melting snow, with rises
expected on most if not all rivers and streams across the area by
Friday and into the weekend.

Those with interests along rivers and streams should keep an eye
on water levels later this the week and stay tuned to the latest
