Hydrologic Outlook

333 PM CDT Sat May 18 2019


A low pressure system, combined with a warm front, cold front,
upper level trough and abundant gulf moisture, will bring periods
of showers and scattered thunderstorms to the region through
Sunday night. Widespread rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches, with
locally higher amounts, can be expected.

The heavy rainfall will cause some rivers to rise above bankfull
or flood stage early next week. The heavy rainfall may also cause
urban street flooding and ponding of water on area highways,
along with rapid rises in water levels in ditches and small

In addition, residents living along the East River in the Green
Bay area should monitor river levels over the weekend. High water
levels on the Bay of Green Bay and the Fox River, combined with
persistent and gusty northeast winds, may cause the water to back
up on the East River and result in localized flooding.

Anyone living near rivers and streams should closely monitor
river levels and be prepared to quickly move to higher ground. Be
extra cautious when traveling at night as flood waters can be
difficult to see until it is too late to stop. Be sure to report
any flooding to your local law enforcement or emergency
management office.
